Multimedia installation with HD Video Délicat Pulse, 2016 13 min 11 sec, with: Catherine Cédilot, Anne Thériault, Adam Kinner, Natalia Lassalle-Morillo
At the other end of the exhibition space is Julie Favreau’s multimedia installation Deeps, of which the video Délicat Pulse (2016) is the centerpiece. The video piece follows the movements of eight protagonists as their bodies touch alien objects, their surroundings, or each other. Favreau’s installation for AMOUR, outlined by colored plastic strips hanging from a scaffold as well as the windows, carves out a retreat-like space within TROPEZ for viewers to get closer to the work, which consists of a video, a photograph, and various small objects. The installation also creates a quiet space for observing the spectrum of nonverbal communication, within the work itself as well as among the pool visitors in front of the kiosk, who can be seen out the window. In the work of the choreographer and artist, physical communication is a crucial subject. She understands sculpture as a medium in which bodies and objects are negotiated in space, as well as a staging of the sculptural within the movement of the sensory human body.
