Going to the museum at night was possible this Saturday, May 14, 2022, on the occasion of the 18th edition of the European Night of Museums. In Marseille, at the Château Borély Museum of Decorative Arts, Earthenware and Fashion, visitors were delighted to find this encounter again. The first to develop normally since 2020 and the start of the Covid crisis.
With our correspondent in Marseille, Yoram Melloul
An 18th century dress on the back, in a completely crazy show, an artist tells the story of the female silhouette through modern songs, under the astonished gaze of Anane who is there with her children: ” It was a surprise and in the end we said I would like to drink what was in his glass. »
She is delighted to come to the museum at night: “ We are a little more relaxed, we say to ourselves, I’m going to go too, I’m going to put work aside, it’s great to be able to go there with the family and enjoy and be less stressed.. »
And then there are the incessant comings and goings of visitors, which create a warm atmosphere, which Marie-Josée Linou, director of the Château Borely, particularly appreciates: “ It’s much lighter, I think people are more relaxed. Also, in this 18th century castle, you really get the impression of being completely back in time.. »
Not far from there, notebook, drawing in hand, Lola, 17, attentively observes a small clay monkey under the light of the setting sun that shines through the museum’s windows: The colorimetry will be different, especially in white with the slightly orange color of the sunset, and we will be able to have a new interpretation of the plane as a spectator.. »
In addition to Borely, ten other museums in Marseille have opened their doors until midnight.
