Sortez Couverts

La performance est un art qui nécessite une pleine conscience de l’environnement dans lequel il se crée. Le confinement pour l’ensemble de la population est une opportunité nouvelle. Elle place le télé-visionneur dans le même environnement que l’artiste confiné. Ainsi, il se crée une connivence naturelle entre le public et l’artiste. Le public peut se mettre à la place du performeur, l’envier pour son engagement , le détester pour son courage ou vice versa. Il se reconnait dans le performeur. C’est une belle opportunité pour que l’art continue de questionner, cultiver, enrichir, éduquer, transmettre, questionner.

« Sortez Couverts » est une performance artistique créée à Rennes le 23 mars 2020.En disparaissant sous une centaine d’attestations dérogatoires, j’ai souhaité questionner les modalités du confinement général imposé à une grande partie de l’humanité.Le costume, composé de plus de 150 attestations, est une métaphore de la situation sanitaire actuelle dans de nombreux pays ; mettre la population en quarantaine pour pallier au manque de préparation et de réaction des gouvernements. Initialement pensée pour interpeller les passants dans la rue, « Sortez Couverts » est devenue virale sur Internet et a été relayée par la presse dans le monde entier, touchant plus d’un million de personnes, par le biais notamment de programmes télévisés et radios internationaux. Les lecteurs, auditeurs, et téléspectateurs ont donc, sans toujours l’avoir choisi, assisté à l’exposition d’une oeuvre d’art. Cette performance interroge ainsi l’accès à l’art contemporain dans un contexte de pandémie où la totalité des institutions culturelles sont fermées et les foyers cloisonnés. »

  1. Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because
    I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.

    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  2. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and
    am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. Hi there! This is my first visit to your blog!
    We are a group of volunteers and starting
    a new initiative in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided
    us beneficial information to work on. You have done a outstanding job!

  4. My brother recommended I may like this blog.
    He was totally right. This submit actually made
    my day. You cann’t consider simply how a lot time I had spent for this info!

  5. Admiring the time and energy you put into your blog and in depth information you present.
    It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the
    same outdated rehashed information. Great read! I’ve saved your site and
    I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account. games ps4 185413490784 games

  6. You’re so awesome! I do not think I’ve truly read a single thing like this before.

    So good to find another person with genuine thoughts on this topic.
    Really.. many thanks for starting this up. This web site is something that is
    required on the internet, someone with a bit of originality!

  7. This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to
    keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.

    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  8. I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  9. Hello there! This post could not be written any better!
    Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept preaching about this. I am going
    to forward this article to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read.
    Many thanks for sharing!

  10. I blog frequently and I really appreciate your content.
    The article has really peaked my interest. I will take a note of your blog and keep checking
    for new details about once a week. I subscribed to your RSS feed too.
