Associate Artist

In a dramatic set representing a cloud forest, Gisèle Vienne explores various canons of beauty through three characters conveying authority, perfection and ruin respectively. A genuine investigation into our intimacy.

This is how you will disappear pushes into a vast and seemingly natural forest where meteorological phenomena soon arise, disrupting space and how we perceive and feel it. A chaotic shift that resonates with the three characters walking through this forest. A coach represents authority, defender of an order that serves a system of domination and allows its abuses, a young gymnast embodies beauty related to culturally constructed perfection, and a rock star the beauty related to ruin. This is how you will disappear evokes these cultural ideals and seemingly contradictory beauty canons derived from our contemporary culture, the internalized struggle between our intimacy and the society that expresses itself through such representations.
