Court Dance II and a soft spot for a proposal

The installation interrogates the silent desire that is also a desire for another piece of ourselves. By taking the decision to step on the soft spot, the visitor turns Court Dance into an exclusive installation. It is possible to project the other on the spotless sight, to surrender to the work’s purity or to propose in silence.
