  • Artist:

Le rêve, « dieu des sauvages » interweaves the opposition of material properties within the space as a metaphor for the tension between individual action and social factors, be they chemical, biological, social, or political. As the vehicle for such tension, the body, along with its will to power, engages with the relationship between domination and subordination to constitute a new body, which exists in the exact moment of the performance. During this process, a fluid painterly compositon is formed between the installation materials and the body, implying the potential of fluidity between dichotomies of the individual and the collective, reconciliation and confrontation, etc.
