Introduction

Any contact and perception between me and life must be tried and invented.

While creating, my body becomes a sensor. With my body, I can perceive in a " transorganic " way what surrounds me.

 

I also use any other object that allows me - beyond the traditional networks - to capture life. For example, I can drag a micro-sensor on

my skin and listen to an event of the world that spreads through my cells.

 

Perceptions are pushed to the extreme of

the human perception senses. My eyes can touch

a stranger's hand tattooed with blood; my cheek can experience political violence in Libya.

When perceptions appear, I record them by camera shooting, audio recording, graphic notes.

Eyes shut, I penetrate my own being. I open and enter myself.

 

The sensations I am feeling are instantly captured on a sound tapping device and sent to the loudspeakers.

 

The voice comes out of the body and the speakers and overwhelms me. The universe, as well as some documents relating to the experience, is installed on a table, they are used to disseminate any mnesic occurrence.

I have installed twelve sound canvasses on structures, twelve drawings that broadcast text overlapping in a continuum.

 

On a table I have placed a monitor and archive documents.

 

The sound contains questionings, sensations / perceptions of the act of conception. The texts come from experiences of contact with the depth of my being.

I feel the warmth of my blood, I can capture moments of my life. I’m becoming just a vision. The shot experience becomes a document.

The picture is circulated. It settles into

the dwelling place where the action took place

and appears in other experimental situations.

Influenced by Merleau-Ponty’s work, I have applied a few personal experiences from his phenomenology of perception. Through the applications, I have realised that my being was a sensitive plate. I was bio-seismic. I am the material of my art, a place of gestation and hence of action. Here, like in other works, I’m pursuing performative actions specific to female artists and writers before me, for example Carolee Schneemann in the seventies.

I am, I am no more, I am the other.
I am “de-working” my own being to rebuild it: it is an action. The photographs of this performative action are put into circulation, thereby creating other versions.

Internal contacts, intimate notes are spoken aloud and broadcast in public in a valuable reserve.

I’m diffusing "feelings" troubles, silences, existential questions, pertaining to pregnancy and conception. Using a light table and a screen showing archive footage.

To utter the invisible in my being, I have created a variety of prototypes that make my thoughts,

my tactile memory and my soul visible. It is a visionary echography of my being. Intimate notes associated with graphite pencil drawings are placed on light structures, they appear and disappear and then continue in loops.

In this experiment, I put myself in my own unconscious. This is the place the brunt of my being. I was soaked in blood. I felt as close to birth than to death. I was giving birth to myself and at the same time, I was forcing myself.

The diaporama projected images follow one another in a sequence of appearances and disappearances in a continuous loop.
