For her second solo exhibition at Galerie Dix9, Marion Tampon-Lajarriette presents her latest video and photographic creations issued from new approaches of her main questioning : the image and its relationships with the memory and dream. The images of the series MoCLT (acronym for an imaginary museum linked to the occult and the modern art) are from a performance visit at the Mamco in Geneva in January 2012, during the night, in a particular time of the museum life - a secret period of assembly / disassembly between two exhibitions. This singular visit in dark spaces in construction was led by Marion Tampon-Lajarriette, who suddenly became a spectral guide for a small group of unusual visitors. Three infrared cameras continuously filmed this night tour of 50 minutes where the artist stopped in front of some works on her way, because of their link with time and memory, or for their haunting or invisible aspect. The photographs of the series MoCLT are strange images captured in the flow of these infrared cameras: ambiguous traces related to a time of darkness, the failure of the visible and the significance of the ghosts in the collective imagination.
