In conjonction to the exhibition Lambda Pictoris presented at FRAC Normandie Rouen, the concert hall Le 106 gave a CARTE BLANCHE to Elodie Lesourd.
The programme has been conceived as a celebration of the alignement of planets of music, art and thought. QuasaRites Day invited to explore this bewitching phenomena that inspires the artist’s work. The event was to be received as the harmony of physical and aesthetic experiences, and was a mean to observe some singular rites.

The artist has intervened during all the day with different and sometimes very discrete forms, and more explicitly with an in situ installation in the 106’s hall, exhibited until April, 6th.
