Video art: Phantasme
Phantasme is a series of video performances created in collaboration between Florence Montmare and Swedish artist Charlotte Aberg. The series portrays acts of consumption of products such as whipped cream, foundation, hair gel, hair color and ketchup and made into a disguise. Conventional ideas of beauty are violated and the characters are transformed into phantoms of their own desire.
Video art: Performance with clouds
Silent, 2007. A female protagonist appears in a dreamlike state. Her head is clean shaved. A blue sky with a cloud serves as the only backdrop. The narrative is open-ended and interrupted. She flings wigs up in the air, juggles and captures them with her body.
