In 1967, at 94 rue Camille Sauvageau in Bordeaux, the “Poisson-Lune” opened. This small cabaret, where poetry readings, plays and exhibitions were on offer, was created on the initiative of a group of artist and poet friends led by Jean-Louis Froment, who would, in 1973, launch the Capc. To this day, no known records remain on this experimental venue, save for a few words on the Internet bearing witness to the brevity of the undertaking and the intensity of the energy deployed.

More than 50 years later, The Moonfish Club re-imagines the place. Here, fiction and poetry prevail over historical accuracy. Letting the “Moonfish” into the Capc is like falling into a time slip – like forcing a chicken to gobble up its egg.

To create this club, Deborah Bowmann, a duo of artists hailing from Bordeaux and recently installed in Brussels, was invited to design the scenography into four contiguous spaces – the Antechamber, the Lounge, the Smoking Room and the Stage. The sets serve as a backdrop for the work of 24 invited artists, and doubles as a reading, listening and conversation space for the members of the club – that is, for anyone who may enter.

Curator: Cédric Fauq
