GENEVIEVE FAVRE PETROFF

VOCALIZE ME

Performance art allows me to express myself in an interdisciplinary way bridging art, digital art, fashion design and music. As singer and visual artist, I am particularly interested in the interaction between voice and light vibrations, words and visualizations in the costumes that I wear and design to tell personal or fictive stories.I present here a new performance where I pay tribute to the democratization of culture and questions the use we make of technology and communication. I parade with a large technological automate dress which evokes Fashion History and politic heritages revisited in a poetic and contemporary way.
