Following an invitation from FOTOHAUS | PARISBERLIN to organize an exhibition on the theme Rausch / Ivresse, Claire Laude and Michel Le Belhomme have invited fifteen international positions of artists around the concept and title "Errance Blanche".
"Errance blanche" means the condition when one changes from a feeling of comfort to a confused consciousness and then experiences a feeling of euphoria. "Im Rausch sein" / "être en ivresse" (French) / “to be in a state of euphoria” can also mean the feeling of invincible power and force which rises regardless of the substances one takes.
This euphoria can be compared with a creative force and its emotions. "Errance" refers to this moment of disorder when the body falls and moves back and forth into a different state when the euphoria and its abnormalities begin.
White refers to the substances, e.g. the color of alcohol or drugs. Metaphorically it can also stand for the white blank page of the artist.
