Following the interest of doctors for my performative work, I have developed since 2014 four performances in body mapping that deal with medical subjects with a poetic and historical point of view.
The First Performance, Vision speaks of the gaze and its subjectivity, as well as the history of color perception. The second, Black Cloud, confronts Hippocrates Oath and the anxieties of a surgeon through a metaphorical fable. The next two, A Fleurs de Peau and A Bout de souffle goes into the history of cancer, but also into its experience by patients and health professionals. A Fleurs de Peau has a focus on skin and melanoma, and A Bout de souffle on lungs.
These performances were created with a voice-over in English and French and with subtitling in English, Portuguese or Spanish, but could be translated into other languages and served as basis for new creations.
Son of physician, placing the corporeal experience and its symbolic dimension in the center of my artistic research, I like to confront science, history, anthropology and art.
