Inspired by the 2019 edition of the La Noce festival, this project explores the porosity of the leather theme.
During the summer, the sweet comfort of couches, sofas, chairs and car seats is matched only by the discomfort of having to free ourselves. Detaching oneself of a fake leather surface, during a hot day, is a profoundly human experience, enjoyed only on a hot summer’s day.
Similicuir is a video installation inspired by this love-hate relationship towards leather-covered upholstery. The short video series and soundtrack evoke, which a touch of humor, the adhesion between skin and imitation leather.
