The performance Muses, 2015 was held at the musée de L’Orangerie in Paris, inside the room where Claude Monet’s Nympheas are permanently exhibited. The two circular rooms architecture has been conceived especially by monet to display his biggest paintings in order for them to be viewed at a 360° angle. Making the space into a cinematic one almost temple like. Monet’s lifelong had the angst of lack of inspiration.
This performance interpreted the space as a temple inhabited by the 4 performers that symbolizes muses, famously creatures that brings inspiration. One of the muses is singing an opera aria, while the other one « the oracle » is in a state of meditation, the 2 other ones are creatures inviting the viewer to inhabit the temple and discover the oracle.
