Fresques is a performance, an epic without words.
Using simple sheets of paper, the artist brings out a forest of serious and burlesque characters representing the many sides of human beings with their impulses and inner monsters. Unrolled, drawn on, cut, crumpled, wet, kneaded and sculpted, the paper acts as a facade to our moods, our multiple masks. Fresques is an intense and physical experience of creating in the present, a continual transformation, savage, fragile and elusive, a vision of freedom.
The performance for the ARTONOV Festival is the result of a residency at Hectolitre.
