INTENTION NOTE - AUTHOR / DIRECTOR
The origin of this project Like an Octopus By Its Own Ink Erased stems from my meeting with Luc Chopplet - Visual Artist, who was my teacher at Terre & Feu Fine Arts School in Paris, where I was investigating the creative synergy between visual arts and performing arts. In his teaching, rich and subtle, never dissuasive, he had allowed me to read his Fine Arts Dissertations des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, also a graduate from the National School of Fine Arts- Les Beaux Arts, Paris.
At the sight of its haiku-title "Comme une Pieuvre que son encre même efface" ("Like an Octopus by Its Own Ink Erased") even before having read its content, the potential of a performative work had appeared to me.
I am infinitely grateful to him for allowing me to draw on these philosophical links the inspiration of this personal, deeply hybrid artistic project.
