Fanny Aboulker works with the material of marshmallow in relation to the narrative of utopian relationships, i.e. relationships not based on the domination of one term over another. During the residency, he will experiment with weaving and knotting marshmallow sculptures that can be activated performatively. These sculptures will be tactile, tasty and fragrant. Iel will also be experimenting with writing in relation to marshmallows, in order to tell a story about the marshmallow relationship. The text and sculptures will be woven together in a performative event at the end of the residency (lecture or workshop).
