Sideshow, 2019

In Sideshow a series of figures appear and disappear in an abstract decor with multi-coloured light. Figures without faces, such as a geisha, the invisible man, bird people and an illusionist with huge hands. In the images, filmed with stop-motion technique and featuring various performers, the artist addresses old predilections: theatre, silent film, puppet theatre, butoh, circus, masquerade and cabaret.
