Shifts, interruptions, cuts, flux variations, temporary vacuums and coding errors in and between the images, are the aesthetic materials of the performance that will translate the possibilities and the limits of our capacities to be together in a cyberized environment.

In the frame of the exhibition Training for a Better World at the CRAC in Sète, Annie Abrahams presented a performance “Huis Clos / No Exit“. 6 Artists, each from their own isolated position, scattered in space, share, via webcams and computers, a space of expression and responsibility, a playground, a laboratory: the projection of their images and sounds in one video projection in front of the public . While executing a protocol they create on the fly, watched by the public a contemporary narrative on the possibility of being and acting together.
