During 2 days, a FREE, FREE AND WITHOUT REGISTRATION tour will criss-cross the city of Nice in about thirty places. General public, artists, professionals and amateurs will meet there to share the richness of transdisciplinary and current artistic creation.
HIGHLIGHTS, SCREENINGS, PERFORMANCES AND MEETINGS ARE SCHEDULED THROUGHOUT THE CITY.
Les TCHATCHES are inspired by the Pecha Kucha.
A short and dynamic presentation format whose principle is simple:
20 images x 20 seconds
6 minutes 40 therefore, during which “Le Tchatcheur” presents a work, an artist, an exhibition, a book, a project, no matter what, as long as it is art.
Each edition of “Le Tchatches” changes location and invites artists, critics, art historians, gallery owners, collectors, etc. to create a presentation based on this format.

* Paris / Bordeaux, Jean Dupuy, 1972/2011
In 1972, thanks to the support of the Sonnabend Gallery (New York) and FNAC, Jean Dupuy rented a wagon on the Paris/Bordeaux train. At the time, this was the fastest train in France: the two cities were connected in 4 hours and 10 minutes. A team of technicians photographed the moving landscape and recorded the sounds produced. A first installation was shown at the Biennale de Paris the same year. Subsequently, all the photographs were destroyed in a fire. In 2011, for the purposes of the exhibition “Le temps de l’écoute” at the Villa Arson (Curators: Jean-Marc Avrilla and Éric Mangion), sound artists Jérôme Joy and Jean Dupuy remix the recording over a period of 13 minutes. This shorter version is intended to be broadcast in an enclosed space, in a total logic of immersion.
This work was broadcast at the Centre Pompidou, as part of the “In Vivo” festival (Curator: Mnam/Cci, Sophie Duplaix – C. Agostinelli), on 11 June 2015.
Since 2010, Jean Dupuy has been represented by the Loevenbruck Gallery, Paris.
