Performance feat. Lucie Eidenbenz | 2012
Lucia Moure’s work explores the subtle boundary between idea and representation; a border that can only be crossed by the call to the senses. In the images she creates, seduction is often used as an illustration of this border between the world of ideas and the world of the senses.
Her creations move from evocation to a perishable, almost disturbing situation.
It is in this articulation between sensory perception and symbolic material, that she meets Lucie Eidenbenz, choreographer and performer, it is through the deployment of the imaginary that she seeks to open the field of possibilities within the real.
Vastraharan (Disrobing) is a performance inspired by an episode of the Mahabarata that tells how the gods intercede for Draupadi, the main heroine of this epic, giving her an infinite sari as men try to abuse her.
In this performance, for 20 minutes, the character struggles to put on a 14 meters sari, dipped in honey.
