Installation 2 M X 6 M, 2017, Flags fabric, sand, objects, rope knots

Multimedia installation, produced for Plattform17. The installation combines performance and the constructed environment as a narrative archive questioning the Biopolitics matter of Isabelle Eberhardt (1877-1904). Isabell a Genevan who lived in the second half of the 19th century in North Africa, nomadic, dressed as a man and calling himself Si Mahmoud Saadi. Taking quotes and modified sketches from Isabelle's journal and associating them with archival documents, the installation draws on this duality of identity as the starting point for a reflection on sexual identity and assignment of roles.
