L’Enfer-Me-Ment/Confinement is a performance/exhibition in which 4 artists have been locked up behind two doors, between four walls during 48 hours. The aim of the performance was to spend that time closed together : creating, thinking, sharing techniques or ideas, fighting for them, for space.…
The confinement is a reminiscent of prison, of room, of solitude. This solitude engedered by seclusion, evokes feelings of walls, borders but also by contradiction, the loneliness of wide open spaces that make us dream. This is not to mention the solitude of urban spaces caused by the rapid development of our cities. Boulevards are bustling with people, crowds swarm together, live beside each other, pass without speaking to each other, without even noticing each other.
Stop time to think and reflect about freedom of creating : breaks, blockage, obessions, unrest, set ideas, judgments of values, irrational deliusiosn or delirium which prevent us from really expressing ourselves, accessing and revealing ourselves.
A human adventure where alliances more than oppositions were created. A lot of work, lack of sleep but incredible feelings which have helped to transcend the unexpected events into creativity.
