Performance Discipline
visual performer, stage director, videographer, french PhD student in Arts at Bordeaux III.
Visual artist and performer.

visual artist, performer and holds a Ph.D. in Literature. Her questionings about the representation , incarnation and transgression of the female body through performance art, articulate a poetic aesthetic which leads furthermore to many political questions. Photography, video, art performance and paintings suggest that flesh should be questioned before the body, the underground world of the psyche before reality and individual power before any notion of authority. Between the sublime and the abject, this alt-world shared "here and now" also refers to the pagan ritual where the mental arena becomes tangible and allows us to converse with our collective subconscious. Its forgotten archetypes push physical and psychic boundaries, and so upset the over-compartmentalized representations of femininity. Witch, female-wolf, whore, bitch or mythical goddess... The archetypal female reverses the Judeo-Christian values and strikes the unconscious with a radical message that advocates individual and carnal freedom, love and plurality of sexuality, reminding us too that death is always present... Her thesis was on "Performing the wild woman, between she-dog and she-wolf. The path of a Virginie Despentes and Clarissa Pinkola Estés reader". It's a study of the performance as an experimental and sacrificial testimony in artistic creation, directed by Jean-Michel Devesa, July 2014, at Bordeaux III.
