Toutes ces filles couronnées de langues
Toutes ces filles couronnées de langues [All these girls crowned with tongues], 2021

In collaboration with Amélie Giacomini

France, 25’, fiction

With: Nathalie Broizat, Silvia Di Rienzo, Anna Gaïotti, Pauline Lorillard and Susanne Schmidt
Choreography: Anna Gaïotti
Photography: Thomas Favel and Michele Gurrieri
Sound: Nicolas Becker and Raphaële Dupire
Editing: Laurent Leveneur and Hodei Berasategui (movie), Nicolas Bacou (teaser)
Color grading: Marie Gascouin
Production: Corinne Castel, Les volcans

This project is a work of research based on ideas of community, body, mutation, identity, language, and environment. We were initially drawn to the desire to write a fiction as a result of a voyage-investigation that took place in the North of Greece: the fiction would be about an island of women. The title is a reference Hélène Cixous and her The Laugh of the Medusa.

This project is supported by Lafayette Anticipations, CIRVA, GMEM, Fondation Villa Datris and Danièle Kapel-Marcovici.

Movie, 17 min

This project is part of an ongoing exploration in which sculptures are the foundation of a new relationship constructed around and with the body, where the sculptures are incarnate. The installation is composed of a film, a sculptural form, a performance, and a sound work. The footage was filmed in the area surrounding Dakar, Senegal. The first shots show a run-down inn, a meandering into a former brothel. When we leave the enclosed space two women and four sculptures perform a strange routine and the movements of water seem to be their language.

The installation proposes a liminal space, one that appeals to multiple senses. The sound is broadcast through the entirety of the exposition space and not only in the projection area. It does not directly accompany the images; it occupies the space and in so doing reveals it, gives it a new materiality. The sound places us in a specific state of perception. It constructs a path in which we re-encounter one of the forms present in the film. This form is an architectural outgrowth, a protuberance that takes on the characteristics of one of the filmed sculptures. Sometimes one of the dancers appears.

The project was originally conceived as a simultaneous projection in Senegal (Biennale de Dakar) and in France (BF15, art space in Lyon), with the simultaneity acting as the project’s heart. It has now multiplied into several versions. At each new exposition, the installation changes. 

Performance: Anna Gaïotti et Mbarou Ndiaye

Sound: Raffaele Grimaldi
