Aux doigts de rose I & II26 Jun 2021
The event is over
Adélaïde Feriot experiments with the possibility of life in the time and space of the exhibition. Bearing in mind the disturbing image of the automaton, between the animate and the inanimate, she sees herself as a "tuner or living machines", and thus weaves links between our material world and invisible worlds.
15h - 18h
She makes captures of skies, seasons and sentiments. She uses sculptural work and installation to probe materials, their origins and their symbolism, then by directing actors, she establishes an exchange between bodies and artworks. This begins in the workshop with her own body and continues in the exhibition space, with the vibrant bodies of the players and the spectators. She thus provides her immobile, silent pieces with the possibility of a constantly regenerated life.

« Black night, 360° of sky.
The sounds that came from his mouth never returned to his ears.
Absence of sound, or rather the absence of material to reflect it.
Blood and water circulated in his body in silence.
The purple tone that the clapping of his hands provoked was reminiscent of the nascent day.
The pink fingers of the dawn. »
