In this Salon, Madeleine Botet De Lacaze will reflect and talk about her recent performance Carrying Stones – an investigation into our body’s resilience and survival instinct, inspired by Virginia Woolf’s suicide.
Madeleine will also explain and discuss her deep interest in Astrology, describing how this discipline has been a strong inspiration and guidance for her ongoing artistic research.
Madeleine’s practice focuses on the body’s relationship to identity, belonging and presence, creating intimate interdisciplinary performances which question our perception of corporality.
Madeleine is an Argentine-born artist who lives and works in London. She holds a BA in Cinematography and a MA in Performance Art from Wimbledon College of Art. She studied Astrology in Buenos Aires for 5 years and is currently finishing her studies at the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London.
