Yasmine and the Seven Faces of the Heptahedron

The Tourist

Memory has something artistic about it, because the reality in it has been modified and perfected by the imagination.
—Henri de Régnier

The Tourist, in the order of appearance, is the seventh character encountered in Yasmine’s quest for the Heptahedron.

Equipped with a third eye (a camera) and solid armour (bucket hat, sunglasses, bumbag, and tanning cream), the Tourist travels the world energised and on the lookout. “I am a memories hunter!” he says. Despite the faults that are attributed to the Tourist, who is mainly accused of fuelling superficial consumerism and of participating in the world’s collapse through the industrial expansion of travel, this individual is nevertheless in search of sense. Indeed, the Tourist is hunting for memories; the very memories that prove our existence, our otherness, and which make us unique beings with something singular to share with the other. With all their senses alert, in the middle of Venice’s Piazza San Marco or at the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Tourist becomes immersed in all manner of unimaginable situations in order to “take” memories. As the psychologist Christof Kuhbandner points out: “To become a souvenir, the event experienced will only be anchored in memory if it possesses a novelty value that distinguishes it in part from the content already stored. This is why a dog that brings back a stick will generally not leave a significant trace in our memory, but a dog playing the piano will.”

Don’t works of art also try to play the piano, in order to remain engraved in our memories? Isn’t it through their exceptional character, singularity, or exoticism that they enter our minds? And isn’t memory the most formidable art critic?

To bring the Tourist’s memories to life, this exhibition unites the exotic works of Daniel Buren, Sol Calero, and Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster.

Rendez-vous at Permanenten and Kafé Mat & Prat at Engensenteret Care Home, and to find out more about what goes on in the head of this character read Side Magazine: The Tourist.

The cantine at Engen behandlingssenter, Kafé Mat & prat is transformed into La Cantina de la Touriste as part of Bergen Assembly 2022, Yasmine and the Seven Faces of the Heptahedron 8.9.—6.11.2022. The artist, Sol Calero, presents a vibrant and permanent installation in the cantine run by Ny sjanse, a work qualification program for immigrants in Bergen.

Gathering: La Cantina de la Touriste

Permanenten (KODE 1)

Free Admission

We meet in artist Sol Calero’s Cantina de la Touriste, which is both an artwork and the functional café, Kafe Mat & Prat. The kitchen is often the heart of a home, a place where food is made for friends and family. As part of this gathering, we cook small dishes that are easy to share.
We focus on ingredients and think about how, with a simple approach, to create an inviting and convivial atmosphere at the table. The first hour is set for cooking; the second is set for eating and cleaning.

Participation is free of charge but requires pre-registration via email.
