Théorème de la vie pratique / Practical Life Theorem is a fragmented story about domesticity and same sex family life through ephemeral performances, improvisations and observations I have very limited control over and some more constructed set up.

Chapter 1 was made amidst the backdrop of confinement in France. During that time, some of the dynamics in our domestic space followed non linear patterns similar to the ones we witnessed in the political discourse and the “outdoor world”: improvisation, (mock) control, fear, change of strategy, collaboration, firmness, rituals, negotiations. This togetherness generated an active engagement with my family - especially my then 3 year old daughter - in making intimate work.The images seem like they were triggered by something only happening for the camera, something that might have never taken place otherwise.
