Magalie Mobetie – 0,005m³ d’identités
Hours and dates
- From Oct 27 to Oct 30 from 10:00 to 18:00
Musée Arts Décoratifs
Born in 1996 in Mulhouse (France), Magalie Mobetie decided at a very young age to become a Swiss Army knife: video, sound, 3D, augmented reality, interactivity, everything is mixed in her creative process. Between tradition and modernity, it is not Japan but the Caribbean that Magalie highlights in her work. She is interested in what is not said, not seen and the reasons for silence. Her transdisciplinary practice is confirmed at Le Fresnoy, studio national des arts contemporains (2020 – 2022), during which time she investigates an old family cemetery (Anba tè, adan kò – 2021).

France has many dependencies and departments spread all over the world. Because of their little-known histories and cultures, the search for identity remains uncertain facing the colonial past and the denial of its repercussions.
“What does it mean to be a French overseaser?
0.005m3 d’identités invites young overseas people of all origins to debate this question. These testimonies, immaterially stored in bottles, can be released by the visitor’s action. By uncorking one of them, the speeches of these young people highlight the complexity of the question of identity in these heteronomous societies. The speeches are illustrated by projections of different types – interviews, landscapes and portraits.
