THOLOS - the circular dome in ancient Greece - has been reinterpreted in Plastique Fantastique's latest installation to achieve a metaphysical experience. The ripple of the columns creates a distorted image of the person looking at them, depending on the point of view and movement of the subject. A black sphere floats in the centre of the ensemble, challenging the perception of geometry and gravity.
Tholos questions the permanent materiality in our time and seeks to be temporary and ubiquitous.

Double Heart is a pneumatic sound sculpture which collects the heartbeats of random people and transforms them into a collective soundscape. Two visitors sit inside the sculpture, their pulse is measured, processed and amplified, revealing the endless variability of these rhythmic patterns. The beats are transmitted in real time by a sound system that can also be heard by the audience outside the installation.

The installation absorbs frequencies of human bodies and searches for possible compatibility between strangers and beloved, questioning the match as atonal repulsion or natural attraction.

Double Heart is a project that is constantly evolving and has already been exhibited at  different occasions. The initial project has been developed together with the media artist Marco Barotti on the occasion of the Red never follows Exhibition, Saatchi Gallery, London: many thanks for his support.

#StayOut oerol
A journey between isolation and communication

oerol festival, Terschelling, The Netherlands, 10 - 19 June 2022
A journey between isolation and communication

A performative installation by Plastique Fantastique that mirrors and questions our habits as individuals in public. #StayOut addresses current socio-political tendencies, reflects the tension between the individual and society, and displays dystopian to optimistic visions of our future. Walk the path, meet forest residents with stereotypical behaviours in scenic spaces, and reflect.

The distance between heart and nettle

The distance between heart and nettle
On the occasion of the BLOOM Festival 2022 in Copenhagen, Plastique Fantastique  creates an imaginary path in Søndermarken Park that connects two different landscapes: the interior and the exterior. 70 STEPS is an endless investigation, that links the two spheres of human and nature from the outside. Along this path, the Individual aims to communicate with the in-between while searching for where he/she belongs.
The polarised concepts, Inside/Outside, You/Me, Private/Public, Nature/Urban become ambiguous and blurred in the perception. The two transparent spaces have a timeless distance that one can perceive differently and make an arbitrary calculation in it (e.g. 70 STEPS). After three days, these ephemeral bubbles vanish, leaving only the memory-based border in the air.
