With her installation Forêt océanique Sarah Westphal reflects on the present through the historical theatre set of Albert Dubosq. Hidden from the outside world, the ballroom and the stage merge in the distance. Giant octopus tentacles are set in the decor and seduce the audience. New creatures emerge in the surreal landscape through a game of reflection, and the set becomes an actor. Reality is mixed with illusion, nature with culture, and analogue with digital images. Water, light, dust particles, and non-human beings create a fluid performance, together with the beautiful colours of the decor.
