In order to better understand the stakes of the art world of tomorrow, Sophie Monjaret launches a whole new project based on the search of the other. “ A sudden need fills me, an idea that fills the void. An obligation to meet the other. To move altogether in a world where we are told to isolate. A need to question the world I’m growing up in as an artist and curator”. A quest towards the other that takes the form of interviews turned into podcasts. In a context where the pandemic has forced a large number of actors from the living and contemporary art scene to silently create, imagine and rethink the world of tomorrow, “Silently // BECOME //”, Sophie Monjaret’s brand new project is conceived as different meeting spaces in times of health crisis. A 41 minute podcast dedicated to SUZANNE shows how a group of dancers and performers can continue to work together when we are not allowed to see or touch each other.
Last February 2020, SUZANNE was in Montreal for the 13th edition of Art Souterrain festival. Programmed with the staged capture of her performance “STATU” broadcasted throughout the festival, SUZANNE meets Léa Poiré, from MOUVEMENT magazine sent on site to discover the entire artistic program. The interview took place at the end of the day, in a very intimate setting that SUZANNE loves while sipping a delicious maple syrup latte !
At the start of 2020, SUZANNE flies to Montreal for the inauguration of the 13th edition of the contemporary art Art Souterrain festival for which she was programmed with the stage capture video of its performance “STATU” broadcast throughout the festival. This last, whose theme this year was “RESET”, was held in various public spaces in the Quebec capital from February 29 to March 22, 2020. On this occasion, ( Julien Chaudet and Lorenz Jack Chaillat-Cavaillé ) were interviewed by journalist Sébatien Jédor for RFI (Radio France International). A five-minutes podcast featuring the words of SUZANNE on her performance “STATU“.
In September 2019, SUZANNE was interviewed by Léo Marin, curator ( Galerie Eric Mouchet, Paris ) whose exhibition “Mapping At Last – The Plausible Island” (2019) was the first opportunity for SUZANNE to show her second creation called “MERCURES” and the very first version of it. Their discussion, published on the online magazine of Point Contemporain, is visually very faithful to SUZANNE’s universe : colors, emojis… SUZANNE talks about her commitments as an artist, her very specific way to work in a group and above all for her love of art and the people surrounding her.
