The patrons, accustomed to acting together yet marking their differences, highlighted their role as social actors in their own right. They pointed out the importance of the object and the way its value was enhanced in the transitional relationship with the buyer. "Objet extraordinaire" (Nocturnal displacement) was the fruit of collaboration between two artists. These artists combined sophisticated production and mise en scène for exhibition in a museum, before envisaging, for the future, an annual rendez-vous with this work, featured on the website of the small shops belonging to the patrons.
