des oeuvres présentes comme réponse au présent mettent en scene la conscience et le dit, comme dire ou produire.

La performance est processus énergetique développé par Sofia A. Ginevra Gianni en forme de séance de yoga. Introspection, rencontre, apprentissage et collaboration participent d'un frottement de zones intimes et lieu public. L'expérimentation célèbre l'empreinte de cultures populaires et du DIY (Do It Yourself) comme référence contemporaine au libre arbitre.

Le vécu est matériel de création, les démarches autofictionnelles sont le reflet d'une société de controle et d'intrusion ou la narration s'expose. Felix Melia interroge la forme, le lieu et le moment de l'individu. La performance du soi, l'attention au corps, ce qu'il porte, ses gestes, un recit articulé éclairent le pouvoir du langage et de la représentation.

Se jouant des codes de représentation, la performance est un réseau de références, d'échanges entre l'artiste et le public. Une toile tissée et dénouée comme poupée desarticulée et partition. Luli Perez explore la figuration et le spectacle comme mode de société. Du propre, du sien, du commun.

Les mots résonnent, le rythme anime, la voix s'immisce. Portez le poids de mon corps, voyez mon âme et résistez au silence du corps public.

'Les pieds poudrés' est un programme de performances realisé par la commissaire d'exposition Rosanna Puyol sur invitation de la YIA art fair et de son président Romain Tichit pour l'auditorium du Carreau du Temple.

Performance is an energetic process developed by Sofia A. Ginevra Gianni as a yoga session. Introspection, encounter, learning, collaboration allow a friction in between intimate zones and public space. Experiment celebrates popular culture and DIY imprint as a contemporary reference to enlightenment and free will.

Experience is creative material, auto fiction reflects a society of control and intrusion where narration exposes itself. Felix Melia interrogates shape, place and time of the individual. Performance of the self, attention to the body, clothes, gestures, articulated narrative underline power of language and representation.

Playing with representation codes, performance is a network of references, exchanges between the artist and the audience. Luli Perez explores figurative and spectacle as a society mode.

'Les pieds poudrés' is a programme of performances curated by Rosanna Puyol, invited by YIA Art Fair and its President Romain Tichit for Le Carreau du Temple.


Sofia A. Ginevra Gianni (born 1991, Naples) is a London based artist working with performance, branding and collaboration. Creating through a learning process, the artist's practice refers to DIY culture as a contemporary reference to enlightenment. She incorporates others' practices to her own, questioning the possibility of some one practice and investigating dependency and freedom experience, extraction from commercial realm.
Gianni received a BA in Fine Art from Camberwell College of the Arts, London (2014) and is currently part of the MFI research educational programme at Flat Time London.

Felix Melia (born 1990, UK) lives and works in London. His work stems from the conflict between primary experiences and the second hand narratives of representation. With a practice that incorporates video, sculpture and performance Melia attempts to unpack and distill the metaphorical potential of places and events as the impact on the performance of the self and the process of individuation. His work explores relationships between collective and corporeal movement.
Selected shows, screenings and performances include, 'HUAK-TUH!', 2013, at Organ Haus Gallery, Chongqing ; 89Plus Serpentine Marathon, 2013, at Serpentine Sackler Gallery, London ; AirBNB Pavilion, 2014, at the Venice Architecture Biennale, Venice ; 'Where City Meets Fringe', 2014, at The Depot, London ; '30 Years of the Future', 2014, at Castlefield Gallery, Manchester ; The Biennale of Moving Image at Centre d'Art Contemporain, Geneva, 2014, and The Museum of Old and New Art, Tasmania, 2015 ; 'All in A Clearing', 2015, at Lima Zulu, London ; 'Moving Sickness', 2015, with Flat Time House, London, as part of The Best Scene is Off Screne, Pt 2: The Street; 'This Place is Really Nowhere', 2015, at Jupiter Woods, London; 'Survival is Not Enough', 2015, at Rodeo Gallery, Istanbul.

Luli Perez (born 1983, Madrid, Spain) is based in London. Luli perez's work is a search for invisible truths, the ones hidden between action, process and change. Using mainly performance, but also video, sound, text and installation, she makes experiments with sequences, time, positions and distances, to see what happens - and to inform future work. There are layers of reality (contexts, views) and to frame them or give them another perspective drives the work forward. Recent exhibitions include 'Live to Camera' at A4 Space at Alserkal Avenue, Dubai, UAE, 2015; 'Out of That Forest' at Kottinspektionen Gallery, Uppsala, Sweden, 2015; 'In the Moment of Doing' at Testbed 1, London, UK, 2015. She is currently completing a Fine Art MA at Royal College of Art, London.
