Anne Lise Le Gac – La Caresse du Coma

Anne Lise Le Gac – La Caresse du Coma

In the frame of the Creative Crossroad activity, Anne-Lise Le Gac was selected by Veem House for Performance to receive a 2 years structural support by the LLB network to work on her latest production "Ductus Midi" and "La Caresse du Coma ft. YOLO".


This support includes a co-production by Veem House and ICI-CCN, a residency by Workshop Foundation Hungary, a residency by brain store project and a performance presentation at Veem House.

Project description "La Caresse du Coma ft. YOLO"

La Caresse du Coma consists of multiple chapters, smoothly drifting from one to the other. In each chapter, Anne Lise Le Gac adjusts her subject, constantly attempting to bastardise reality to let fiction ooze in. This relation to fiction is born from a desire to redefine our relationship with the other — whether it be human, digital, animal, or vegetal.

All chapters are situated in a Croatian spa, where currently a Happiness gathering is taking place:

“I have been staying in a four-star hotel-spa in the heart of Croatia for about forty days now, during a gathering of people who are in search of Happiness, convinced that they live in an INFINITE LIVING WORLD.

Within the group, they each have a transitory status: as I am new, I am automatically a DOG, “a loving machine”, and my number is 23.

In the beginning, DOG (23) didn’t know anyone, soon COACH, PIRATE and ANGE 92Kcal shared their advice, beliefs and practices. DOG (23) soon meets LIQUID VIRGIN, the spectral figure of the Happiness Movement. LIQUID’s presence is manifested by a breath called YOLO, a kind of primordial atmosphere; a passing contact between DOG (23) and YOLO will leave DOG (23) with no choice but to inhale deeply and spit.’’

Chapters La Caresse du Coma
The chapters/features are presented separately, because a feature lasts between 50 minutes and an hour. Each feature is a meeting between a DOG (23) and another bastard species met in the Croatian spa.

Chapter 1: La Caresse du Coma ft. COACH
Chapter 2: La Caresse du Coma ft. PIRATE

Project description "Ductus Midi":

What’s this painting ? It’s not a painting, it is a map. And you will find your way inside. A memory palace takes place, and we often meet there. Among other things, we grow oblivion. This palace does not have any address, it is closer to campfire than pyramid. It can light up more or less everywhere. We made it a purée, a yoghurt-song, a fountain, a boogie, a false memory, a blackbird, a speaking map. You can touch the surface where our rides intertwine. In our hands, the matter is soft. On a terrain with hazily edges, we begin a trip without resolution.
