Expo : Imagine France by the sea

Expo : Imagine France by the sea

Thanks to deftly balanced recklessness and restraint, Maia Flore knows how to turn a beach into a bed, and the sun into a partner. Her way of considering the French coastline is quite compelling – as though she were humming “everything is possible” in your ear.

Maia Flore travelled the French coast from the easternmost point all the way to the West. Her journey-performance led her to 28 places which all answer, in their own specific way, the question of how to get away.

We look at the sea with emotion because it's boundless. The artist similarly twists, changes or heightens reality – maybe a way of saying that she will not conform to its tepid rules? She leaps mightily, climbs boulders, lets go, rushes down dunes, dives into creeks, rises before dawn and goes to bed long after sunset.
