The body of my soul

Video Installation

This installation questions us about the love relation and the pacts that we weave all in our life. It asks the question of the freedom in the union beyond the sacred, the symbols and the dogmae. The installation stages the bridal dress. Suspended in the sights, this dress livens up in an appearance which seems angelic, magic… While the dramaturgy takes place in the airs by the video projection

Maflohé wished to celebrate the Roma gypsy woman, tribute to her distant roots. She stages herself naturally to expose the multiple discrimination of the Roma women and their social exclusion. Ambivalent icon, provocating and seductive bride, restricted in her movements, imprisoned by male hands without body. The video mapping on the dress evokes the dance, the shouts, the laughter, the tears and proposes, in a surprising direction, a dramatic and expressionist environment.
