SECRETS

Émilie Franceschin

 

Secrets by Émilie Franceschin is an exhibition that reveals the mechanics behind the conception and execution of performances. Though ephemeral, these creations give rise to a new set of tangible materials gravitating around drawing, text, arrangements of objects, music and video. The act of performing, like the secret, is not something that can be told. It has to be accomplished, to be lived. And it is through this notion of “being there” that the artist accompanies us on a journey across places and times where the body acts and evokes the intimate relationship it has built with its surroundings. This soft immersion will be followed by a performance (date to come).
