UNDERGROUND

A performative installation conceived in a reduced and intimate space, Underground imposes an atmosphere which is inspired as much by the peepshow as the erotic oriental painting. This space is a giant box, a kind of white semiopaque cube, pierced with diagonal slits, which is reminiscent of the Japanese art of bondage. Inside, two dancers, a man and a woman, move slowly, distant from each other until the first physical contact where an embrace is made possible. The two bodies thus entangled then accelerate little-by-little towards a frenetic state which suggests coitus, perceived by almost subliminal images. In an almost total silence, dictated by an interactive system where all noise turns off the lighting of the device, the spectator must assume their condition of voyeur, aware that their actions are, in turn, visible to all.
