Megumi Matsubara at the Marrakech Biennale

Our Arts Editor's pick performance at the Marrakech Biennale

Toi, un coquelicot — Un coquelicot, moi aussi

Performance by Megumi Matsubara & Marine Chesnais
Sound by Clovis Lemée

Toi, un coquelicot—
Un coquelicot, moi aussi.

A coquelicot, you are—
A coquelicot, me too.

When will our bodies coincide?
A vanishing point will be explored. ​

Two performers ​will be present for one another i​n ​the peculiar​ environment of Palais El Badii's underground cave​.

"Toi, un coquelicot - Un coquelicot, moi aussi." (performance, 2016) is fabricated upon Megumi Matsubara's installation of ​"A proposal for a textbook to learn Braille, English, and other languages" (bronze, 2012-2015)​, "La Japonaise" (scent​​, 2015)​​ and "Undress" (text, 2015).

The performance which will have been once presented will leave a series of afterimages unfolding the works' varied states within the space.

The installation will remain on view through the closing of the biennale, 8th May 2016.
