Le magasin de pulls (the jumper shop)

Performance and installation

The Jumper Shop (‘le magasin de pulls’) is an exhibition, a performance, a shop and an opera.
The plot is based on Baudelaire's flaneur turning into a woman doing her shopping.
The shop's soundtrack is written by fabienne Audeoud. It turns the space into a stage, while viewers become actors and/or clients.
The garments on sale are navy blue and brown jumpers. They are basics or classics representing quality and a timeless ‘bourgeois’ good taste.
Navy blue is one of the colours of power (police, gendarmerie, marine and business) and therefore looks good on everybody.
Brown jumpers require a brand and its narrative to become trendy.
The lighter the colour, the more bourgeois it becomes: the nude has its nuances.
The cardigans, jumpers and sweaters on display are (more or less) pre-loved, worn out, shrunk by the washing machine, with large and small holes and of different qualities.
Most of them come from les Puces de Montreuil, a flea market in the suburb of Paris soon to be taken down for Olympic sport competitions.
They operate as performative markers, like the French verb "porter" taking on different meanings depending on context:
"porter un message" (to convey a message), "porter le nom de son père ou de son mari" (to take one's father or husband name),
"porter une charge" (to carry a burden), "porter sa croix" (to bear one's cross),
"porter un personnage à l'écran" (to perform, to embody) "porter un coup" (to strike).
"Une voix qui porte" is a voice that carries well.
