cROSS RESIDENCY - Porto

Amélie Sounalet

01.07> 08.08.21

Porto

Born in 1994, lives and works in Clermont-Ferrand, France.

Amélie Sounalet analyzes in her work our complex relationships and interactions with objects. Tools are

usually designed to extend our hand or to increase our strength, and thus make our daily tasks easier.

Architectural layouts are designed to guide bodies and optimize flows. We are connected and always

available thanks to our phones. Everything around us acts, in a more or less conscious way, on our body, our

posture, our interactions with others. However, these technological extensions of our bodies, in the words

of Marshall McLuhan, inevitably lead to amputations in other places: where we become more efficient, we

run the risk of losing our freedom to think and act. Amélie Sounalet takes a close look at these elements of

our daily life which can be as much our accomplices as vectors of deep alienation. By humorously twisting

their original use, she reveals the absurdities of a capitalist and consumerist model of society, focused on

self-performativity and illusory appearances.
