Paradise Series  performance, scenography, printed files — 2019
Paradise Series is an installation with movable, easy to set up elements and specifically designed tools, activated during a performance. In becoming the director of a collective fantasy, I enable myself  to escape my mundane daily life.

The dream of a life better than the one we know is an essential part of human nature. Paradise is an omnipresent timeless figure expressing a yearning for that which is absent or desired. Today, in our modern western society, Paradise has become a commodity on the tourist market, a highly controlled construction that responds to the needs of Western tourists to transcend the limits of daily life. Escapism is produced and sold in an easy accessible form: a getaway to an exotic remote island. However, it is an artificial construction that ignores the local reality of these destinations and the imagined experience can never be reached, because it doesn't exist outside the imagination.

Signs from quarantine  performance, flag, collages — 2020
While in quarantine for covid-19 in Lausanne, I sent motivating signs to the outside. At a time when we are all connected throught the world wide web, I did my research on pretechnological ways to send signs over long distances. I made an  interpretation of  the semaphore telegraph by Claude Chappe, the quarantine signal  flag, the semaphor alphabet and messagses in a bottle.
