L'Atelier, Art Center, Mitry-Mory

duration 30 min

Dressed in feminine apparel (lipstick, stilettos and lace), the performer strips and sets about covering her body with black lines. Standing steadily, a true living statue, her body at work, she keeps to her rule unperturbed.
Through the repetitive drawing motion, an intimate gesture enacts itself, minds are set free, the body goes through a metamorphosis, turning hybrid, between male and female, part human and part animal. Becoming an object, too, since the performer entrusts it to the audience – inviting them to partake in the ritual, to mark her and experience the flesh as a sensitive surface that stands as both expression and a reflexive medium.
