Mutant Stage 7

Date: 2016
Medium: Film, 2.29 minutes
Exhibition: Mutant Stage

Throughout this exploration of smoke sculptures created by cloud chasers, (LA)HORDE seeks to give shape to a latent moment within the Fondation’s transition.

The smoke occupies the building’s space with a volatile and magical aesthetic, exploring its potential to welcome artworks and creative projects in development. It bears witness to a space in transition, whose shapes are not yet defined.

The cloud chasers, a new generation of smokers, embody an active expectation which gives rise to an artistic exploration. Their poses in the space emphasise that the Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette already exists, and that pieces are created within it.

This film wishes to be a surprising and unexpected response to Lafayette Anticipation’ commission, offering a radical gesture stemming from an alternative examination of dance and spaces for creation.
