Everything must be interpreted as intensity (2017)

Everything must be interpreted as intensity focuses onto the relationship between human and animal within our society. What is ‘the animal’ in a world where everything has been reduced to an object aimed at satisfying men’s needs? And what for consequences do current power relations have for species other than homo sapiens? Inspired among others by Francis Bacon’s triptychs, by Deleuze and Viveiro de Castro’s discours around human and animal, the performance consists of 3 visual and physical acts of violence: two individuals attempting and eventually succeeding in overruling the other one; a blood waterfall taking over the space; the drinking and wasting of 12L milk, as foolheaded portrait of overconsumption and mass production.
