Gwendoline Robin (BE)


duration : approx. 40’ (+ travel time)

Vibratos is the latest stage in a vast project developed by Gwendoline Robin, Agua, which combines water and air. Although some theories claim that comets could have brought water to Earth, its true origin remains an enigma. We do know however that men and women worshipped it in ancient times and considered it a place of residence for certain divinities. Air too, invisible and elusive, is steeped in mystery, from spirit to the power of language through the body. It is also said that men and women inscribed their history through song. Vibratos will take place somewhere in Nyon, seeking to find a concrete approach to these two fundamental elements by playing with physical and chemical phenomena. Beyond the scientific experiment, the plastic process operates a subtle mutation that causes amazement; Voices outline a territory and a liquid surface turns into cosmic visions.
