Bestiary Of Under Restraint Delighted Beings, 2009

This installation consist of six videos showing different incompleted and censured portraits who suffer from the inability to self-express. They transform in an attempt to escape from disappearance, extinction and death; Their metamorphosis is a failure.

For the opening, the installation was accompanied by a live performance: myself, in disguise, erasing parts of my drawings.

I presented this work for the exhibition Fable et Fragment of honored graduated students from Beaux-art. I was awarded the top prize for the exhibition: The Hiscox Start 2009 award :
