Antoine Defoort & Halory Goerger
Antoine Defoort FRA
Antoine Defoort defines himself as a diverse artist, who seeks to make use of the presence of daily life in contemporary art. This can lead to contradictions, digressions and even missteps, which are never rejected, so as to allow them to contribute to the performance’s “rawness”.
His work unites shapes, senses, mediums, and materials, just like collections of connections, which he himself refers to as “collexions”. The elements that contribute to his creations, whether they are videos, films, sounds, installations or texts, are individually conceived, prior to being arranged in the context of heterogeneous and anti-thematic interdisciplinary performances.
Halory Goerger FRA
I practise several small jobs (performer, visual artist, writer) in order to finance my passion, namely selling matches on Christmas Eve in the snow-covered streets.I make shows and installations instead of building houses or repairing animals because it’s better like that for everybody. I work on the history of ideas, because everything was already taken by the time I came along. In most my undertakings, total destitution flirts with formal rigour. I have a concern for getting out alive.
