Agathe Simon creates experiences which question the boundaries of the lived experience and the senses, by radically reinventing the connection with the self, the others and the unknown. These individual and communal experiences open onto another reality – via the commemoration of fictional personalities (The Polar Project, its lecture-performance and its tribute ceremonies), the celebration of the body (Heart is HomeEcstasies), and participative experiences (Year 1, Trilogy of Fire). This portfolio presents a selection of recent projects.
