Pièce pour cinq interprètes at the Havana Biennial: An Interview with Stéphane Gilot and Ariane De Blois
By Aseman Sabet

Presented in the spring of 2014 at pfoac221 (Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain) in Montréal, the installation Pièce pour cinq interprètes, lumière rose et silence was created by Stéphane Gilot in close collaboration with curator Ariane De Blois. An immersive and poly-sensorial structure, midway between a bunker and meditative cell, the work will be presented at the 12th edition of the Havana Biennial, which has the theme “Between the Idea and Experience.” Advancing a transdisciplinary and intermedial perspective of art, the Biennial’s team of curators seek to contribute to the “displacement of the autonomous object to the context and experiences”(1) by means of projects spread across the city that each, in their own way, generates interactions with the social fabric. This interview, conducted by correspondence, highlights the rationale of this multi-faceted project in order to elucidate the defining characteristics of its presentation on Cuban soil.
