HUMANBLOB

OEUVRE TEXTILE

At first, Humanblob is an interactive textile sculpture that is part of an installation. The multiple faces with different features but indistinct and without personality are captive in a uniformly colored pouf. This humanized pouf illustrates the similarity of individuals, that is to say captives in the same universal concerns. Visitors to the installation presented in 2017 were then invited to sit on the coussin. This gesture questioned our relationship to others; crushing of individuals and individuality.

PERFORMANCE

Humanblob is a unique, multifaceted work. I wanted to push its potential beyond the object and extract a body from it. This performance is the manifestation of a deliverance. In 2019, I made a first workshop presentation with fellow artists. In February 2020, Annabelle Chouinard performed on stage at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal in a collaboration with the Volt Ensemble. Stunned by the mobility of the sculpture, the spectators felt surprise, unease and curiosity.
