No words can describe the new visiting exhibition at Aulps Abbey…but half-words just might…If you’re tempted to find out more, delve into the mysteries of a novel typographic invention from Compagnie Alis that’s all about word play!
Using the original characters available from Compagnie Alis, visitors are invited to play with the word shapes. Hidden letters are soon revealed by unfolding them, or by using perspective or shadows, with surprising results: “aulps” hides “ruine” and “abbaye” reveals “rebelle”...
This fun and surprising exhibition provides a perfect – and poetic - opportunity to explore the ski area with words that echo the monastic backdrop.
Your literary journey can be extended with the “typolutrin”, an original machine that gives every visitor the chance to invent two half-words from a noun of your choosing...
