uses rolls of plastic and adhesive tapes to create and fix ephemeral
Each realization is specifically created for an event , including
the architecture and the atmosphere in the art process. In performances,
I often work with musicians, other artists and any volunteers.
The moment of creation becomes a work of art which is held at the
rate/rhythm of the rollers of Scotch tape and cellophane, according
to a process which integrates also symbolic systems objects. Occasion
of adventure and experiment , each performance remains open to the
plastic is fixed, unrolled, tensed, woven to evoke a universe of
organic forms, in daily spaces as well as in strange places.
From an aesthetic point
of view , the plastic films and adhesive tapes make it possible
to play with the transparency, shade projections, light which passes
through my constructions. Plastic surfaces change into three dimensional
stained glass, which plays with the circulations in the landscape.
The available points
of structure influence the form of my constructions and the need
for my displacements. In this permanent movement, the accidents
and the obstacles are partners of the action. A choreography gets
generated by selected materials and their occupation of space. My
physical and mental envolvement in the performance aims at the intensity
of the moment, the complete concentration in the gesture and the
image, the experiment, interactions.
In my workshop or during
public performances, I wrap men and/or women with cellophane and
adhesive tapes, according to the principle derme/épiderme.
The models try out this second skin which provokes new feelings
(comfort, heat, new zones of perception) then they remove themselves
their chrysalis. They can hold between their hands a facsimile of
their own skin.
More than A BODYPRINT, it
is a memory-object, a metamorphosis-witness.
The performance lasts the time wished by the model. The resulting
sculptures integrate other actions, installations.
