Reflecting on live actions in the public space in relation to these challenging times, can we consider live stream platforms as other sites for experimental practices?

In this context where we control exactly what we show and what we hide, what connections
do we make between the necessities of our actions and the images we choose to
communicate?

Without thinking that live platforms should, in any way, replace the direct experience of
action art, I believe that it is quite crucial to collectively rethink several ways of meeting and continuing to make work, as well as to reflect on the various forms of dissemination of action art.

Perhaps it is possible to find a balance that would enable us to explore these questions and
to adapt without compromising the work, be it radical, subtle or furtive.

In order to open a common space of reflection on these subject matters, I wished to gather
the work of four women artists, who question the cultural constructions in relation to the
image of the body and specifically the female body.

Whether it is establishing strategies of discomfort to explore certain evocative qualities of the unspectacular or embodying gestures that attempt to distort a situation in order to address opposites such as attraction and repulsion, these women share a very personal way of
exploring notions of limits and resistance, while using the body as a site of experience and
possibilities.

It is with much pleasure that I invite you, on September 5th at 6pm (CET), on the Out of Site platform in collaboration with the Experimental Sound Studio to discover the committed and uncompromising work of Émilie Franceschin, Michelle Lacombe, Carron Little and Manuela Macco.

This will be live broadcast to Experimental Sound Studios twitch channel:
