AFFORDABLE SOLUTION FOR BETTER LIVING
CONCEPTION, CHOREOGRAPHY AND SCENOGRAPHY
In Affordable Solution for Better Living, visual artist Théo Mercier and choreographer Steven Michel place a Kallax – a most peculiar totem – in the middle of a spotless space. The flagship shelf unit by the giant company Ikea epitomizes “beauty for all” and the democratization of design. In three acts, the show debunks the model and unfurls the convictions and doubts of a nearly perfect and polished man. A centaur, half man and half furniture, absurdly builds his own customized interior, unique and yet like all the others.
