Le Hautbois de Delphes (The Oboe of Delphi)
Artist’s Edition

Patrick Quillier
Alexandre Capan

The poet and the artist come together around a theme: music and everything about it that’s ineffable. A never-before-published text by Patrick Quillier and original works by the Nice-based artist Alexandre Capan consider music from the perspective of Vladimir Jankélévitch’s je ne sais quoi et presque rien.

The figure of Vladimir Jankélévitch permeates the entire text, serving as the point of contact between the two authors’ imaginations.

Le Hautbois de Delphes appears like a musical work that backons all the senses to address the question of time and its undertones.
