ARTISTIC STATEMENT
03/2022
N FEBRUARY  2022, WHILE I WAS PRESENTING THE RESEARCH "X.DATES", DAVID NORSWORTHY, A DANCER, CHOREOGRAPHER AND ARTS EDUCATOR,  SIMPLY ASKED ME : HOW COULD YOU  INTRODUCE YOUR  FIELDS OF INTEREST ?

Through the process of researching on various works I made, a specific space has self-structured over the years; thus becoming aware that what brought my research to exist, to be deepened, to question the generic definition of the word "art" was THIS space, entitled : an artistic practice

Whatever the theme of the project, my practice has

always been to address the following 3

questions in each of the creative processes evoked : 

WHAT-  HOW- WHY  ?

What is the "what" I want to investigate ? What is the zone I am looking for ? What do I target artistically speaking ? How do I express this « what » through a performative context ? How do I incorporate a physicality ? Why is it important for me to stage the "what" in this way ? 

Understanding my identity as a filter for my research had guided the content of my artistic practice and how it fit together : 

WHO/WHAT I AM will lead to WHAT I DO

My interests within this practice are articulated in the simple act of embodying something that has no body yet such as a societal fact, a personal life experience, an aesthetic, etc. The physical materiality of these unbodied elements proposes a functionality, a dramaturgical content, a narrative that I want to explore in relation with the cultural/social/political/sexual/functional body.

The physical outlets becomes content that generate visual narratives  where various mediums  such as light design, sound, text, set design, costumes, installations, intersect.

Through a queer mindset and a non-binary logic, my practice operates as a body/laboratory within an  underground  poetic    where I do question the tools, the systems, the processes, the mediums that activate the process of receiving for the audience : What do I see ? What do I get from this ? What does it make me think/feel ?
