REMINDER – Hantu – Comme l’herbe pousse – opening at 5pm today
This afternoon at 5pm Hantu‘s exhibition ‘Comme l’herbe pousse’opens at the exhibition space 3, rue Française of Miss China via zoom.
Hantu‘s latest works (photographs and drawings) are clearly a call to a rewilding. Objects that serve no purpose, that graft themselves onto the body to constrain it unnecessarily, photographs of performances that grow like these grasses, wise or foolish, insinuating themselves into the few spaces that we are still willing to leave them, the cracks, the gaps, the interstices, inviting us to nourish a ‘Saxifrage’ energy, to blow up the implacable logic that silences even the most fragile desire.
Hantu(Weber+Delsaux) is a duo of performers whose work deals with the memory of the body and the ghosts it carries within. For Hantu the body is a device endowed with a power that reveals the material and immaterial flows that pass through it, the forces that inhabit it, the interactions and impalpable links that are established with the entities around it: it is at the same time a medium and a privileged field of investigation.
A performance without an audience filmed on the evening of 10 November in the exhibition will be presented at the Mucem, Marseille in December 2020 (as part of the “Tout un monde à l’arrêt” event jointly organised by Aix-Marseille University and the Mucem). The 30-minute film will be entitled “Nature Vive”.
