The scene is sparse, bare: there are few essential objects and very simple clothes.
Body and word take a step back to recover a bestiality that is typical of the human but which is beside it, a little set aside, hidden: curved figures who explore a space that is familiar but hostile, perhaps dangerous.
The emergence of visions are linked to themes such as premonition – eroticism – the beast – the eroticism of bestiality.

We rely on the following exercise to give color, flesh and words to a constantly changing place.

Questions:
1. Is it day or night? – 2. Who does it belong to? – 3. Is it reassuring? – 4. Where is it? – 5. Can you accompany with the moon? – 6. Where is it from? – 7. How many people does it contain? – 8. Where would you put it in an empty space? – 9. How does it react to fire? – 10. And in the dark? – 11. What crime does it correspond to? – 12. What material is it made of? – 13. What material would you like it from? – 14. What relationship do you have with it? – 15. What language does it speak? – 16. How does it die? – 17. With what should it meet in a dissection table for this to be beautiful?

Risposte:
1. Nocturnal – 2. To him – 3. No – 4. On the palm of the hand – 5. Yes – 6. From my stomach – 7. Infinite – 8. On the ground in the far left corner – 9. It becomes incandescent light – 10. It opens – 11. Bestial – 12. Quartz – 13. Unknown – 14. Distrust but it enchants me – 15. Not mine – 16. Opening like a scream – 17. 2 kneecap, 2 collarbones and a belly.
