WONDERFUL WORLD

TRILOGY OF THE MODERNS III

by Caroline Gaudriault

When men have finally freed themselves from all responsability and all commitment, when they have unburdened themselves of the idea of courage, they will at last be able to live entirely in their artificial world. A happy, ideal, festive world : a Wonderful World. Like a giant funfair, this strange universe will be home to a host of superheroes, new universal idols living in untrammelled freedom. The rules of the game have been defined : permanent entertainment, necessary infantilisation, absolute virtuality, universal happiness... A Wonderful World in which reality no longer exists, in which it is possible to be someone else. But the schizophrenic delirium of its inhabitants - men and women transformed into real life versions of Mickey Mouse, Scrooge McDuck and Pinocchio - invitesan ironic gaze. Wonderful World is a contemporary mirror reflecting either a simple sarcastic fable or, if we’re not careful, a trouble reality.
Contains conversations with Paul Jorion and Paul Ardenne.
