Eve Bonneau

Eve Bonneau uses the body as live matter in constant transformation; as an organism – with its flux / reflux of interior rhythms – which the artist then ‘grows outwards’ until they arrive in shared space.

She describes this process as “the passage of experience from the body into the performance, of an organic world becoming a social body”.

In ‘‘Body’ is the first word I say’, Eve Bonneau approaches nudity with the eyes of a child, as if caught in a game of multiple perceptions. Through interaction between the performer and a live video relay, the body and its image interrelate in constant dialogue. This is an intimate performance for limited audiences.

Eve Bonneau is an artist based in Brussels. Before beginning her solo career she studied at the P.A.R.T.S. academy under Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Rosas.
