Extime blends performance and cutting-edge medical imaging in a work based on intimacy (“Intimus”: further within) and making the body more visible.
In a contemporary reconfiguration of anatomical theatre, Marianne Chargois and Matthieu Hocquemiller propose a reflection on seeing, between erudition and post-pornography, that questions the fluid and dynamic boundaries delineating what is normal, obscene, private, personal and internal, that is the ever-changing definition in fine of a contemporary body.
