Won over as much by the remarkable quality of its architecture as by its location facing the sea – or its long history of interweaving art and the surrounding landscape – Quebec artist Jocelyne Alloucherie conceived a project specifically for the Musée d’Art Moderne André Malraux in Le Havre.

In winter, the light of the sun enters the room diagonally. It forms a luminous grid that makes patterns of the floor. The faint shadows evoke a luminous stretch of water although it is motionless in appearance for, as it is part of the earth’s rotation, its motion is not immediately perceptible to human eye.

It was with this vision in mind that Jocelyne Alloucherie chose to intervene in the large space in the museum between the works of the collection and the real landscape, bathed in light that is powerful but always softened by the proximity of water. She devised a fictitious sandstorm that may also resemble a storm at sea, a succession of images reframed in the space by a horizontal series of sculptural volumes.
