Théâtre de l'ordinaire is a collaborative project with Maëva Berthelot.

In today’s digital world we receive a constant feed of perfected and manipulated imagery. We wanted to explore and confront this ‘idealised’ imagery by approaching it from the ordinary man’s perspective.

This project records our re-processing / regurgitation of the absorbed visual language of advertising, showbiz, popular culture, beauty and fashion. Working immediately and intuitively though improvisation, shooting one-shot takes to release control and allow the reality of the situation to surface. We surrender to the work right from the start confining ourselves in the challenged asthetic; indulging in our search for perfection and the reality of our vulnerability and humanity.

An attempt to bring glamour in the ordinary, on-screen magic into real life.

An attempt doomed to fail or wildly succeed.
