Séance de lecture investigates the physical manifestation and the performativity of a book. Looking subjectively at the never-realized project of French poet Stéphane Mallarmé

Le Livre (The Book), this work explores the relationship between text and word, speech and act, the materiality of writing and reading, as well as the expansion of pages

once manipulated, re-read and spoken. It operates as a partial reconstruction of Mallarmé’s project, based on Hurth’s thorough research of his manuscript.
