Co-production "PURE" by Christian Bakalov
"PURE" is an immersive performative installation that investigates the influence of imagination and narratives on our perception of reality and their impact on the relations that compose « Me » and the « others things ».
Guided on a parcours made of permanent situations and latent visual compositions, the audience activates these living pictures simply by incorporating their physical presence into it . With each personal background and history coming into play, visitors are invited to explore the various ways by which we design our reality, ranging from how we choose to construct an image, to our more unconscious hopes, fears or desires.
"PURE" is the second part of a trilogy inspired by Spinoza’s concept of Eternity and is closely linked to birth and death. Swaying between visual arts and performance, "PURE" generates interactions between bodies and objects and creates situations in which the audience, the performers and the installations has equal function into a common art object.
"PURE" is a collective ritual that gauges the essence of our human condition through an experience of heightened intimacy and inescapable intensity .
