"THE FLYING OX"
A creation device allowing infinite ways of thinking and acting for a machine/body that unfolds, loses, and finds itself, also continuously forgetting.
With this sculpture, the dancers of Shopsui Platform wear a device that becomes an extension of their own bodies.
Each detail of this work is independent, detaching itself from the sculpture without losing the link with it – made through folds and elastic bands. It is skin, paw, shack, tail, clothing.
It is sculpture, and parangolé. It is a device to create possibilities.
