Release : June 2023

An acrobatic exploration of the relationship between time and space on a sculptural experimental device.

Two dancers and an acrobat on a Chinese pole embody three individuals lost in this suspended “non existing place”. Between releases and tensions, slides and propulsions, continuity and rupture, gravity and suspension, they evoke the relative and flexible character of time-space.

An interconnection made visible between the movements of their bodies, their weights, the variations of space driven by the oscillation of curves and the beat of time symbolized by a metronome pole. 

Lemniscate, a sculpture both abstract and organic, recalls a hip bone, a moon, or a planet with which the artists are at one with or extract themselves from, generating confrontations of scale and language, a relationship between their own internal body and their stellar body. 

A multiplied and almost continuous vision offered by a rotating device evoking the plurality of points of view.
