La poésie du visible et de l’invisible, du sonore et du visuel, de l’immobile et du vivant, s’offre alors à nous, sous une forme libre, sincère et plurielle.

Arthur Rosset (who also signes ANIDE) is a multidisciplinary artist from Lyon, currently living and working in Berlin. Throughout his life he found inspiration in nature, poetry, philosophy, hypnosis and music. He has exhibited in London, Lyon, Megève and Berlin. In his recent body of work ANIDE wants to explore the imagination and its benefits to us.
Through different approaches, mediums, materials and experiences, he likes to create reveries that help us to reconnect with ourselves and others. His entire creative process is focused on creating a dreamlike world that invites you on a journey through it. Mediated by music, art and movements, his abstract language is full of figurative suggestions creating many different layers in terms of interpretation and feeling. The most recent expression of this desire to dive into these reveries together with his audience through his artistic examination of the imaginary is the exhibition series called “Theatre of Reverie”.

//About the show:
In a world which seems to have reached the limits of the societal dynamics put in place in recent years, it seems crucial to invent new belief systems in order to create a more stable, sustainable and environmentally friendly society. To do this, we need to ask ourselves as individuals: what inhabits, drives and animates us? What do we want to defend and share?
This exhibition should be understood as a suggestion on how we might be able to do this: Reconnect with our inner world and create collective narratives based on what embodies us. Mythology has always had an important place in history. Through imagination and symbolism it serves as a reference point in our daily value system. It makes us believe and drives our thinking. But what are the myths of our modern and occidental societies?
The first show of the Theatre of Reverie revolves around these questions and invites the visitors to reflect on their own visions and myths. Lost between dreams and reality, this exhibition wants to inspire the audience to create new collective myths, which we need to re-establish in order to form new (inter-)personal imaginations about ourselves and our place in this world.
//About Theatre of Reverie:
Composed of different multidisciplinary shows, the “Theatre of Reverie” revolves around the theme of the imaginary. Through collaborations and the creation of bridges between different mediums, this series of exhibitions explores themes that experiment around the deeply human state of reverie:
Hypnosis and automatic creation, dreamlike performances, content around waking dreams, suggestive and meditative music, workshops on alternative realities, studies of recitals around memory, etc…
Closely linked to our perception of the world, our imaginations shape our way of approaching reality. The stories we have heard and those we tell ourselves inhabit and form us. Since the dawn of time, humans have been creating narratives, ranging from everyday stories to myths that span across the ages. All of these narratives are intended to convey messages, to maintain a memory or, above all, to build ourselves as individuals or as a society.
This series therefore aims to trigger this imagination’s automatisms through sensitive, generous, intimate and immersive experiences in different locations with different concepts. It was built around a desire to create bridges between people and their own stories and tries to offer a poetic vision of our daily lives, so we can maybe experience new perspectives on our own imaginations and therefore on ourselves.
