Presented as part of the new series Prélude à la MIAM
Through the story of the artist’s great-grandmother Amanda, who was motionless and mute for 18 years, Les Veuves Parallèles examines how memory is passed from one generation of women to the next. The dining room table is the stage where the past re-emerges. A fantastical family portrait where the terrifying and the banal co-exist.
Techniques: Puppet clothes and glove puppets
Target audience: Adults (13 years +)
Duration: 45 minutes, followed by a discussion with the artists
