// Artist Statement
The work folds for the Lindenau Museum (Altenburg, Germany) may be understood as a rapprochement with the history of the museum’s collection of plaster casts. I was particularly interested in the ancient, fragmented bodies – how through the loss of limbs they became almost abstract, fragmentary sculptures and yet still disclosed a nearly uncanny vitality. Also noteworthy is that the collection entails sculptures, Greek in origin, that have been replicated time and time again. Hewn from marble and partially painted in color, the originals were repeatedly copied in marble or plaster in different places across centuries, despoiled of color and slurred in detail.
Despite these multiple re-shapings that attend the loss of the original’s memory, new meanings and frictions arise with each copy in each respective present. They are the precondition for over 2400 years of the ongoing revitalization of the legacy of antiquity. The fold, a continually recurring visual and conceptual motif in my works, is for me the pictorial metaphor for these layers and distortions of meaning. In the projection the fold becomes connected to the fragmentary sculptures, swirls around them, makes them flow with bygone colors, protects or clothes them, gives them peace and lets them come alive for a moment, in order then to be stored as a further layer in the sediment of oblivion.

AXIOM.3 is an interactive dance performance augmented with projection mapping. The performance is controlled by the audience through a street organ, which is tracked via the PS3 Eye.
The rotational speed of the street organ affects song tempo, dancing and visuals.
By this both audience and dancer influence each other in their actions and create an unique outcome.
Projection mapping on stage design and dancer. The mapping on the dancer is generated in realtime with a kinect camera.
Everything in realtime.
All done in vvvv with three computers, three projectors, kinect and ps3 camera.
Dancer: Liv Hayde
Music: Timatim Fitfit - No How

A ambient audiovisual live performance with Pierre de Mûelenaere (electronics) / Aurore Picavet (violin / voice) / Pierre Pevée (dj) / Flora Hubot (live painting visual)
InnerMountain is an ambient piece of music created and played for chinese painter Xu Longsen exhibition "on a top of a thousand mountains" (Europalia China 2009/ Palais de Justice de Bruxelles/ 10/10/2009 - 29/11/2009) official opening. Made of reprocessed samples from berliner pianist Nils Frahm and fields recordings, the electronic composition by Pierre de Mûelenaere is sublimated with the voice and violin of Aurore Picavet and Pierre Pevée's turntables ; while original live painting visual by Flora Hubot is screened on architecture of French Institute building this time. Main inspiration of this audiovisual creation comes from the work of Xu Longsen : oversized mountains painted with ink on white paper; as questionning relations between the full and the empty, one of the points of oriental philosophy called "Tao".
