Scene I and Scene II  is a reflex.ct.ion on exchange and roles.
(as sculpture, as stage, as play, as spectacle)

Scene i and Scene ii on view for Faire Fair 2 curated by Eve Delavie at 3537, Paris, France, April 2023

The stage is set for a theatrical exploration of the intricate layers of social roles. A metal printing plate, serving as a symbolic shelf, hangs horizontally against the wall, mirroring a miniature stage. Here, actors inhabit liminal spaces, caught between two performative realms, welcoming the audience. As the (virtual) audience observes, the (real) spectators lean in, actively participating in the spectacle. The stage becomes a nexus of exchange, where the observer and the observed interact, each gazing and being gazed upon in turn. Working as an analogy between the representation and the real, as one engages with the object one engages ultimately as a double viewer: both of the tangible piece and of the virtual scene.

Scene i, metal printing plate mounted on wood, two angle brackets and 6 screws, 20e century-2023
