L’Éternité: (Not to Break)

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Since 2004 Saâdane Afif has been asking his friends — usually artists, writers or critics — to write lyrics inspired by his artworks. This simple experiment rapidly turned into something with a greater importance. The texts not only question the notion of interpretation and commentary on a piece of art; they have also become a fundamental material of Afif’s artistic practice.

In the contexts of his exhibitions, Saâdane Afif gave these texts to different musicians. Their musical interpretations offer various mutations of the original ideas from which the artworks arose.

Lyrics Records is Saâdane Afif’s own label, which acts as an archive of this very process.
