Roundabout

This performance was created in June 2015 following the request of the Philosophes Vaudois group for the series of conferences regarding eroticism in art.
 

Eroticism:
“A set of phenomena that arouse sexual desire…”

 
Roundabout, concept:
A black box, the viewer looks inside of it through holes that are reminiscent of a peep show.
In the box we gradually distinguish a woman’s nude body in the darkness. She’s dancing, lit only by a black light bulb. Her body smeared with a black substances and the only prop she’s holding is a hand fan. Tiny white balls fall out of the hand fan and slowly reveal the shapes and curves of the performer when they fall on her body.
 
A moving image, a fantasy, woman or man, it doesn’t matter, this is not the question of gender that is important but that of Eros as a being on its own. A strange incarnation that moves to the sound of its own voice.
