Déliquescence cosmique, Olivia Lathuillière (2022) – Performance

In this piece, a magnetic fluid is trapped in a frame, as a reflection, where a shadow is manipulated to act as an exercise in shaping the representation of the self and the human, between mutation, attraction, and fusion in its cosmological reflection. The research consists in developing the physicality of matter to use it as a visual choreographic element and by converting magnetic variations into sound. All bodies attract each other whether they are terrestrial or celestial. Gravitation is not a real force but rather a phenomenon caused by a deformation of space and time by the masses. Déliquescence cosmique raises the question of our relationship to post-humanism and the anthropocentric approach we have with space-time.
