Le Stade de la Lose



Olivier Cablat’s project, Stade de la lose stems from a private collection of objects commemorating historic defeats and traumatic events in the world of soccer.


We learn that the airplane-shaped ashtray commemorates the death of almost the entire Torino Football Club team in a crash in 1949, that Bernard Tapie recorded a song entitled “Réussir sa vie” on vinyl in 1986, or that a mug reminds us of the incredible kick that Eric Cantona gave to an English fan in 1995.


At once an archive of supporters’ souvenirs, a collection of printed material and a parallel reading of an intimate collective history, Stade de la lose also embodies the modern capacity of the image to move from one medium to another.
