Agnès Ferla
La fête de Méropé

Using a variety of supports including costume, video, wallpaper and performance, Agnès Ferla examines painting and the different ways in which it can be presented.  Here, she revisits the theme of appearance and disappearance echoing the myth of the Pleiade Merope, interpreted through original choreography which is filmed and projected onto a double partition.  A montage of images extracted from the video is shown on a wall panel in the manner of a monumental fresco.  Designs inspired by three of the artist’s works have been photographed and printed onto fabric to make the costumes which become living paintings when accompanied by dance movements against a background of lakes and mountains and ghostly presences when suspended from branches in the exhibition space.

Supported by Ville de Lausanne and DANSOMETRE – espace de création & recherche chorégraphique
