On the left, a slaughterhouse rail to which a butcher hooks bundle-shaped blankets. In front of each of them, a stool, a lamp and a video playing in a loop evoking a work on an assembly line. Next to it, another blanket is activated: it throbs and oozes a black liquid. Opposite, a precarious barba-papa stall designed and built with found objects. The confectionery is made of recycled materials (foam stuffing). At the entrance, a screen retransmits a strange scene: shirts hanging and lined up begin dancing and impaling themselves on their hangers in a ballet macabre. At the center, a strange character. A mirror cylinder equipped with a lid roams in space, reflecting it. Supervisor, worker, security guard... Its function in the space remains undetermined.
This installation takes the form of a temporary workshop deserted by its workers, where machines are nonetheless still active. The aims of the company are obscure: activating objects by giving them organic qualities, suggesting the edible through fake, the execution of clothes, which incarnate and exhaust themselves at the same time. All in a constant atmosphere of surveillance.
