Born in 1987, Ludivine Large-Bessette lives and works in Paris. In her multidisciplinary work, the represented body becomes a mirror that is able to unsettle and question the audience. Through the use of melodramatic codes of cinema, through the painful sensation of a resisting body and through the play that emerges from absurd situations, she confronts the viewer with the role of the body in our social interactions and in our contemporary environment.
Her works have been exhibited and screened among others at the Crystal Bridges Museum of Art in Bentonville in the United States, La Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris and at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Strasbourg.
Adaptation reports the meeting between a body, the one of a French dancer and a Finnish landscape.
Of the landscape created by Man to the Man conditioned by the landscape, there is only a short step, or rather a set of forms. Is it one that influences the other? The other that revealed itself by the first? We don’t know anymore. The one that fits and the one that bends, merge and size each other up at the same time.
And that's all, this game of interdependencies, geometric shapes and physical sensations which lead us to rediscover the commonplace of our daily lives.
