Wearing red gloves and lit by a single lightbulb hanging from a wire, Madeleine Fournier worms her way among the items of a drum set playing autonomously. With only her hands, with her lanky limbs as she is double-jointed, she delicately enjoys the movements of a traditional Auvergne dance: bourrée. Then the space thickens, her muscles get tight, focusing on ploughing, in order to experience the density of the rough and fertile ground. The result is an amazingly rich substrate, that borrows from rural fantasy as well as eco-feminism, where layers of meaning are overlaid, so as to blur the line between the mechanical and the organic, the natural and the cultural.
