1993 – Funny Stories
DescriptionComedy through time The exhibition was held in downtown Montreal at the Laughter Museum, five storeys of a former brasserie. Trying to confine laughing has its own dangers. To kindle the spark that triggers off a smile, the visit itinerary had to play on surprise and push the visitors' curiosity as far as it can go. In a labyrinth of settings, the scenography of this exhibition-show manufactures giggles by conjuring up unexpected misunderstandings and changes. The juxtaposition of very contrasted spaces keeps people hovering round the 1000 facets of laughter, between morbid humour, tender fun, bursts of laughter and sarcastic grins.
