Participative performance during " Le grand sommeil ", solo exhibition at art center Ongoing, Tokyo, Japan. September 2019, 2019

The great sleep,
it refers to the moment of falling, after summer.
When the fauna is slowing down and the nature is preparing to enter a sleeping state. It also refers to death.

I use the sensation of torpor accompagnying the sensation of falling into another state, as a tool to go deep into the confusion of the mind.
Somewhere around vegetating, observating and being not productive. What can be perceived as not active and a default mode in our society could actually be one among many forms of resistance and hacking against a modern order of the right now and what can be seen as the good morality.
As the vegetation is adaptating to humans, while hacking their architectures in silence and turning vertical structures into ruins, with time.
Enter a state of possibilities, maybes, unknow.

In praise of laziness and floating worlds where everything living can end, disappear and reborn in a different state.
