Lost time, found feet, Cynthia Lefebvre

In 3 bis f, Cynthia Lefebvre makes the body an apparatus of relation where fragility rhymes with flexibility. It is a space of circulations, crossed by flows, links, articulations. By locating it somewhere between bone and water, this one is thought as a fragile scaffolding, zone of passage(s) and memory. A body that has absorbed, that has compiled. With voids, fulls, overflows. A body which makes with the reception, the abandonments, the losses, the absence. A body that deals with all the bodies it contains. Which loses its footing, to better find them.
