Hobby Horse

©2008 Alice Daquet
Performance at the Consortium in Dijon, France.
Related to the first video works, hobby horse is questioning the difference between human and animals.
For the artist Human beings are a failure in the metmorphose process. We became powerfull because of tools, but we also became killers of our own spiecies. In this performance, instinct submerges the human body giving birth to a disturbing creature. The difficulties of the audience to bear the sight of a human body shouting like an animal show how far we want to be from our origins.
