My room looks like a lie
Installation with an inflatable room
Artwork produced with the support of the Région Île-de-France Talents Émergents
This installation transforms the space of a bedroom, symbol of intimacy, of a protected space for oneself, of stability, into an ephemeral, fragile space, open to the view of all within the public space. The performer herself, moving her room, her identity, her body, reveals her nakedness in the urban space. In "My Room looks like a Lie ", the installation appears as the performance progresses, we can see the performer evolve in the middle of natural and urban landscapes, shreds of plastic litter the ground and suggest the remains of a large animal. Over time, the pieces of plastic start to move slightly and a transparent chamber takes shape. Like a soap bubble, this inflatable chamber generates an impression of both lightness and emptiness. The performer lies down silently in this bubble, as reassuring as ephemeral, then gets from the bed which disappears. As in the enigma of a dream, the room disintegrates in a ghostly way with invisible pipes, leaving a disturbing impression of the absence of reference points and impossible refuge. At the end, the room disappears and becomes a simple plastic material. The pieces that appear and disappear from moment to moment in different places contain a metaphor of our nomadic identity.
