Emmanuelle Huynh and the DJ Automat (Raphaël Vendramini) did not know one another, but wanted to work together. As is often the case in life, the context of their encounter was to determine its nature and outcome. Emmanuelle Huynh and Raphaël Vendramini see themselves as archeologists. Through sounds and gestures, they seek to reveal aspects of the stories, layers, and secrets, of the artworks they encounter during their performances.
At the Petit Palais, they engaged in a dialogue with the architecture of Charles Girault as well as with the works exhibited in the context of FIAC Projects. The melancholic movements of the Automat loops change our perception of the artworks. The spells woven in dance form by Emmanuelle Huynh increase their potential for immobility and movement.
Visitors participate in a virtual – but nonetheless very real – exhibition tour. In the manner of ventriloquists, the bodies of Emmanuelle Huynh and Raphaël Vendramini are transformed into artworks in motion.
