HYBRID SHOWS 2020-2021
PERFORMING DAWNS (2021)
Leap into the Earth was showcased both online and at Hoxton Gallery on the 1st of January 2021 as part of Performing Dawn. The exhibition was curated by Tom Lovelace, to welcome 2021 with optimism, presenting an experimental display of practices positioned between performance, image and the screen.
Drawing on the tradition of Tantra, the ritual performance explores liminality on both personal and collective level. Accompanied by Finchittida Finch who held my hand along the way, the burial of the life-size ceramic cast of my adolescent body is collected by her benevolent gaze. Our empowering connection was the perfect container to integrate and let go of the spring of my life, to enter a new season of the feminine.
POWER PLAY BIENNALE (2020)
The Emperor's New Clothes was commissioned by Power Play Biennale (Singapore) for their 2020 edition Invisible Lines. It was performed live on PowerPlay Instagram, connecting online communities across the globe.
By revisiting the famous folktale, Clémentine invites the audience to reconnect with their inner child. She will be guiding you through a tantric journey, into the depths of your imagination, to the source of your will power. Tantra comes from Sanskrit tantram which literally means loom. It is about merging mind-body-spirit, about being 'independent' or a person who is their own weaver. It is a sacred philosophy that teaches self-empowerment through transgression.
