Texte intégral

1My installations, drawings and performances transform our perception of time and space and create an interaction with the spectator or the listener. I am interested in the notion of passage and the ghostly character of sound, its ability to reveal an architectural and/or mental space, an inner landscape. I make my sounds to explore the sonic and evocative qualities of materials, summoning a memory and a collective memory. The loss of reference points, the illusion or the cycle are leitmotivs present in my pieces. My creative process is based on listening, experimentation and a certain economy of means: I use everyday materials and recycled objects (paper, rope, adhesive tape, etc.) that I divert.

2Many of my pieces are not photographable. I find it difficult to put them on a website or in a digital portfolio because they rely on a certain perception of space and require a particular attention linked to a physical experience of reality. Often, these are works that must be activated by visitors to appear and/or be seen, and even within an exhibition space the public sometimes misses them. This pushed me to play with this “flop effect”, to claim a certain form of autonomy of the work, which remains however problematic when one needs to present them virtually.

3Thus all the flops are not equal and this is why I wanted to use a medium more “adapted” to the temporality of digital spaces: video. The flop explored here is thus finally another flop…

4The video Le champ du yaourt is part of the series of performed sound sculptures called Sounds with no genre, created from an instrumentarium of found objects and diverted instruments. Combining dissonance and resonance, the performances give life to inanimate objects which, recycled, become inhabited by sound matter.

5The acoustic installation of the yogurt field is composed of a large nylon rope and a makeshift resonator: a giant yogurt pot. To activate it, I develop a repertoire of gestures by moving my hand and a bow on the string. My goal is to play with the perception of the space of the place by creating a visual gap between the sound source and its diffusion.

6During this performance, I created a dialogue with Sosana’s vocal research.
