We chose therefore to use the two art gallery rooms as a backdrop for the titles chosen by Lianne La Havas. The first one is the inevitable « No room for doubt, » a beautiful love song performed in the former shed of the Skating, currently the main room in the art gallery.  We then settled in the principal room of the former Skating… totally empty, with as sole accessory a cardboard hippopotamus, remains of an old exhibit.  It’s with this funny face-to-face that we propose to listen to a second title «Is your love big enough?».
