Le Crédac

Disputational Methods, 1/3 The Living-Dead

Flora Bouteille

Continuous performance with Aurore Serra, Charlotte Lecuit, Gabriel Levie, Dima Emelianenko, Victor Villafagne (sound).
Four performers evolve and act, in a continuous way, in the exhibition space. Their actions tend little by little towards the setting up of an interactive device within which the public can ask “to see”. In this new performance by Flora Bouteille, the large hall of Crédac unfolds into a real game board, here associated with a reflection on what we consider to be false or true, dead or alive.

Flora Bouteille (born in 1993, Rodez) lives and works in Paris. She uses the mediums of sculpture, writing and video
and video to bring together actors and audiences in performances involving their consent to “be” part of the work as a condition of its unfolding. This approach incites to act and interact, to apprehend the notions of cooperation and responsibility and their ethical limits. In her pieces, Flora Bouteille questions the artist’s use of public and political space and the way in which power and knowledge are shared. She relies in particular on the study of psychosocial behavior and the thought of Gilbert Simondon to try to establish the conditions of an “individualizing” experience for the spectator.
Flora Bouteille currently teaches at the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris, with the performance studio para-normal activity.

Her performances were notably presented during the Trajectoires festival at the LU, Scène Nationale, Nantes (2022), during the course Étoiles distantes at the FRAC des Pays de la Loire, Nantes (2021 and 2022), at the Espace Niemeyer, Paris (2021), Poush Manifesto, Paris (2021), at the Palais des Beaux-Art (2021), on the occasion of Manifesta 13, Marseille (2021), at the center of contemporary art of Ivry, Le Crédac during the collective exhibition La vie des tables and within the framework of the Festival d’Automne (2021), at the Biennale d’Art Contemporain de Lyon (2019) and at the Salon de Montrouge (2019).
