Yann Toma, President for life of Ouest-Lumière, a fictional company producing and distributing artistic energy, is setting up an agency at the Zadkine Museum for one night. Ouest-Lumière intends to respond to the current shortage of light with federative and radical devices, inviting visitors to pedal until they are thirsty, and to become the actors and driving forces of an unprecedented lighting device. West - Light agents will operate permanently to ensure the essential link to the physical and jubilant engagement of the spectators. The participants will live a unique experience, individual and collective: being one with their dynamos, muscular and nervous endings connected to cables and light vectors, the synergy of the circulatory flows will animate the Zadkine museum as never before. The museum becomes one of the branches of Ouest - Lumière, for one night, joining the vast cartographic, energetic and artistic network of the utopian and archipelic world drawn by Yann Toma for more than eighteen years. As an extension of this electric night, and as a way of following the global reflection of the President for life of Ouest-Lumière, the booklet-poster Dynamo Post-Bankrupt, published by Jannink in 1000 copies, will be distributed to the participants of the device. Texts : François Noudelmann, Sylvain Lecombre, Yann Toma, and photographs by the artist.
