Episode

Behold an experience that will offer you an educating and spectacular plunge into Manet’s famous painting. Thanks to VR, you will in turn view Edouard Manet, his model Suzon, the patron who gazes at her and the Gallery visitor’s perspective.

Each of the characters will have their own first-person voiceover educating the viewer about the painting and its context in an original, intimate and immersive way. We will thus be transported into each of the protagonists’ universes through their eyes and inner monologues. First, Manet himself – in his workshop – will touch on his work as it is in progress. The artist thus replaces the painting in the context of his entire body of work and explains his choices in composing it and his pictorial technique. Then we delve at the heart of the tableau to enter the Folies Bergère, watching Suzon through the man with the hat’s gaze. We wonder about the woman’s mysterious look on the mirror that seems to reflect an entirely subjective reality. Then through Suzon’s gaze we discover this mythical place – the Folies Bergère – and the Parisian society’s shady underbelly. We finally emerge from the art piece to find ourselves in Galerie Courtauld – where it is exposed – looking through a visitor’s eyes.
