Sang Bleu is an exploration about the body and its relationship to its material components. Clusters of esh and bacteria that interpenetrate, devour each other, and decompose. Whether it is through death, illness or infection, the artists o er a vision of degeneration that divorced from nality or the annihilation of the body. Rather, it is a process of physical trans guration and the constant evolution of the flesh.
“The encounter between our respective physical languages allowed us to test them and recon gure their habits, in order to create a common physical language. The exploration began with the theme of death, in the sense of a process of renewal and of constant physical transformation. Our aesthetic takes cues from the work of Norwegian painter Odd Nerdrum and Patrick Bernatchez’s Chrysalides series, among others.”
