le corps-glitch (multitudes)

virtual reality installation, variable dimensions, 2021-22

„You are noise
you are a breathing container
look at yourself, all that becoming.“

„a glitch-body grotesque and beautiful, sewn from several pieces, a
multiple body imbricated in the ambiguity, incorporated in this fluid
and living material
that can be felt, touched..."

The work proposes to explore a poetic science-fiction to merge with the Other, change body, skin, slowly metamorphose into a hybrid being that connects with plant, animal and technological species. The creation of a fluid space without clear limits - a river, turbulence and indeterminate surfaces in which it would be possible to contemplate oneself - but increased by a certain mutation is at the heart of the project. In this virtual environment, the artist wishes to work on the idea of the fractured human being by presenting the body augmented with a multiplicity of perspectives in a vision of symbioses and potential collaborations with the animal, vegetal, technological or indeterminate Other.

On a narrative framework that borrows from science fiction,a voice placed in the virtual space will express their own point of view on a utopian, feminist and non-human-centered future. Those words will echo the reflection of the mutated body of the person doing the experiment.
