As a posthumous tribute to the artist François Morellet, right after his passing away in May, the exhibition retraces his work and his friends' at the Fine Arts Museum of Chambéry, in south easten France. The idea is to rediscover his major work, the Malevich Ghost that stands on the façade of the museum. This unique exhibition was launched two years before his death. His works are then supposed to leave for the Centre Pompidou in Paris in May 2017 and in New York during fall 2017.

Sébastien Delot worked along with Caroline Bongard (curator at the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Chambéry) for the curating of the event. « This exhibition will host exceptional pieces, like the one of the first Neon or the painting called The 3200 sq. m., a minimalist piece of 1957 of which preparatory drawings enable to understand fully the work. We started from the Ghost which is central in the visit. He talked with a lot of emotion about this chamberian installation. It marks the start and the finish of the exhibition. »
