Adrien Monfleur (FR) & Vincenzo Carta (IT): Secret Garden
Secret Garden is a multimedia and interactive project on the edge between cinema, performance and installation that reveal the nature of an image in what it has of partial and subjective and question our relationship with the nowadays fetish object of capitalism, the smartphones. Vincenzo Carta and Adrien Monfleur use this device to play with three different notions: the space of visibility, the space of representation and the represented space as Louis Marin defines them. Displacing the gaze of the spectator through these notions, they try to question and transform the status of the public itself.
Using their bodies, some simple objects and a camera, the two artists create on screen and on stage an intimate universe where the meeting of bodies is the leitmotiv. The public, smartphone in hand, will enter the "Secret Garden" and explore the world of cruising places.
