"Organic" est un diaporama sonore de 2 min chorégraphiant la série Animale. Il met en scène un nu humain et un corps animal : poisson, mollusque, insecte, oiseau, reptile… Il s’agit d’un jeu dans l’arbre de généalogie des espèces et l’esprit de Darwin. La mise en relation des peaux, peaux fragiles des humains et multiples de l’animal, crée une sensation physique immédiate et renvoie à un imaginaire puissant.
La série Animale est un travail sur les émotions, les pulsions, les réactions et les contradictions. Ses images parlent des tensions ou dissolutions qui se créent au contact de la vie. Qu’est ce qui est fort ? Faible ? Laid ? Romantique ? Génétique ? Organique ? La série interroge la part animale de l’humain, explore les sensations comme la vie les renvoie.


"Organic" is a 2 minutes sound photoreel of the “Animale Series” photographs. It shows a naked human body with an animal - fish, shellfish, insect, bird, reptile, etc... This is an imaginative game with the family tree of the animal species and the Darwin’s theories. The combination of skins, fragile human skin and a range of animal skins, triggers an immediate physical sensation and evokes a powerful world.
Animale series is a work on inner feelings, urges, relationships with others, and the resulting contradictions. These images evoke the tensions and dissipations that life generates. What is strong ? Weak ? Revolting ? Romantic ? Genetic ? What resonates when confronted with this mix ?
Animale Series is addressed to what is animal in each human being and explores the visceral responses to life. The goal is to express these complexities in one glance, to face them, with their darkness, to understand them and to attempt to free oneself from them.
