Sentenced to 42 days of quarantine, Xavier de Maistre in 1790 begins working on his voyages autour de ma chambre. He uses the limitations imposed on his physical freedom of movement and the time thus gained for contemplative expeditions into the vast interiors of his soul, while not far from his comfortable enclosure the revolutionaries are working to abolish that very interiority. From his exile in Savoy, again in privileged surroundings, de Maistre publishes the voyages in 1795, establishing the genre of “armchair literature.” Three versions of this genre (the voyages, Guillaume Dustan’s in my room, 1996, and Ernst Jünger’s forest passage, 1951) will be explored by three performers in a performative installation.
