Rose Akras – Tour de chance avec les mots                                                                        performance 6.11.2016 16:00


Tour de chance avec les mots is inspired by Michael Gibbs performance Short Story and the video Deuxième poème symbolique. The serene and unwinding sphere in the video and the constant writing and erasing in Short Story form the departure for a work that dialogues with Gibbs world. In my live work, movement and the creation and erasing of image and text, using different materials, play an important role together with representations of time and space. I perceive Gibbs works as an invitation to enter the thought and the mind as a space where the presence of artist is still felt.
