“Chaosmos – a portmanteau word invented by James Joyce – represents both chaos and the ordered world (or cosmos in Greek). […] Poetry begins at the precise moment when the order presiding over our representations of the universe, our daily habits and our language, vacillates. This vertigo tosses us into the turbulence of a matter-emotion, where the ego, the world, and words incessantly move, come together, and break apart. But this return to chaos also offers an opportunity for a new genesis.” Michel Collot, Chaosmos (Belin, 1998).
Perverting the organic laws of representation, a dazzling mishmash of imagined objects have colonized the museum and its collection.
