CARCASSE: In this experience that lies somewhere between a museum visit and a theatrical performance, you are invited to wander around an accumulation of ash-gray micro-particles. Amidst this organic matter in a state of decomposition, five fragile bodies are learning once again how to live. A live video feed manipulates and deforms our perception of the events. Time is suspended. The work asks: once the dust has settled, how can we all unite to survive an episode of immesurable violence? DANS L’IDÉE DE NE PLUS ÊTRE ICI: You enter a smoke-filled room. The walls have disappeared, and the floor vibrates under your feet from the booming score. Free to move at will, lie down, or be still, you have ample time to navigate this mysterious landscape and position yourself alongside the other visitors. There is a dramaturgy of shadows, appearance and disappearance, and occasional explosions of blinding, colourful lights that punctuate an otherwise contemplative environment. It is hope, trepidation, the waiting, and the perception of faces that lie at the core of the experience. This is art as refuge, as a radical place for togetherness.
