L'Âge d'or

Cardellini | Gonzalez

performance re-creation for Marseille



In a shopping centre, somewhere between a theatrical journey and a guided tour, L’Âge d’or explores the ideals of commercial architecture. The experience, which is new and deeply unconventional, invites spectators to think about the way in which this ultra-coded space acts upon them. A participatory observation that places them at the centre of the performance.

Administrative offices, banks, shopping centres… in their work focusing on architecture, power and capitalism, the Swiss artistic duo Igor Cardellini and Tomas Gonzalez propose a surprising visit that borrows its codes from guided tours to archaeological sites or museums. Here in Marseille at the Centre Bourse, L’ ge d’Or presents the American-style shopping mall as a kind of fake globalised city. Wearing headphones and accompanied by a guide, visitors discover the spaces, evolutions and challenges of this emblematic temple of mass consumption, replete with promises of happiness. A well-documented, erudite, fun experience that is adapted to the host city.
