Project realised with the help of Musée d''Art Moderne de la ville de Paris, DRAC ile-de-france, Vision Forum Lingkopping Universitet.

This piece can be seen on a stage, as a show (what I call a slide-play), or as an installation, both including a vinyl and a booklet.
The story : The tale told in this piece is the story of Seule-Alone, the only human being on earth, who is alone in a house wich used to be a veterinary clinic. Often she leaves the building to go out and try to find people whith whom she could speaks. In the meantime, Alone left, all the objects of the living-room tell their incredible stories.

Seule-Alone est la seule humaine au monde. Persuadée que seul le langage fait la différence entre humains et animaux, dans sa grande solitude elle pense être un cheval. Afin de se prouver le contraire elle sort tous les jours à la recherche de gens à qui parler. Et c'est alors qu'en son abscence les objets de son salon tiennent des discours métaphysiques.
