Video + site-specific Installation
Futordome, Milan, 2020

A body that suffers, with the stomach aching, looking for help in the irony of leaving to a flower its faith in love.

“Il m’aime, un peu, beaucoup, à la folie, passionnément, pas du tout.. “
The words of the french game ‘Effeuiller La Marguerite’ appear on the video as subtitles; the voice only recitates “M’ama, non m’ama”. The two languages match and clash in finding fortune in love.

Mocking at the experience of an actual stomachache, the performance recreates the gesture of picking a flower petal by ripping the sheet of a pink roll of toilet paper.

The video performance led to a site-specific installation: a bedroom invaded by petals peeled off the toilet paper roll. They accumulate neatly on a metal mesh creating a mattress and covering the opposite wall. Now covered in bright pink shades, the room hides a body that can no longer inhabit the space.
