In company of Curator Claire Boucharlat
For LE BAL, Batia Suter has created a work in situ which stretches from the entrance to the lane, using reproductions of giant shoes on offer in the sale shops along the Avenue Clichy, and continues right into the exhibition space. Fragmented, dissasociated, faces and bodies inhabit the space which is gradually contaminated by pulsating forms, which appear to come to life with their own organic logic. Freed from their original intended uses and formats, the images become moving particles in a new imaginary order in constant flux, infinite and vertiginous. Objects made up of intuitive combinations, these images enter a polarity to form an animated work affirming beauty in the chaos of all the facts and gestures in the world around them.
