(plugged / trendy)

installation, carton and electrical equipment, 1.4 x 0.6 m

December 2015


This installation was shown during the HEAD’s exhibition "Habitat en histoires" at the Villa Dutoit in Geneva from January 16th to February 1st, 2015.

I wanted to illustrate the effects of music in the body of someone who's really into it. In the headphones, one could hear "What Would The Community Think" by Cat Power. I addressed what I imagined one could feel when getting into a really good piece of music: goosebumps, shivers, misty eyes. I mixed up these sensations with literal representations of French idioms like "avoir des papillons dans le ventre" (getting butterflies in your belly) or "avoir un noeud dans la gorge" (having a lump in your throat).
