(ta)Badelaide is a one-day outdoor project, performed during a hard rubbish week in Adelaide, Australia, with furniture collected in the street. It consists in an outdoor living room, open for sharing experiences: painting collaboration, food & discussion.
La vie en roses
La vie en rose is a two-week outdoor project, performed in the little village of Mas d'Azil, France, where the issue of small or collective habitat causes controversy. I built a mobile installation, in the shape of a very little house, made of second hand pallets. It consists in an outdoor photo booth, open for self portrait and sharing experiences about feeling home and life in pink.
