The Social & Political Body
*Action Hybride is a collective of artists whose members are firmly committed to the subject of the ‘body’.
*Action Hybride is present in all forms of artistic disciplines: from performance to photography, from painting to installation, from video to sculpture, from drawing to writing.
*Action Hybride stages the body. It interrogates its limits from the practices, perspectives and visions that question the future of being and the human condition: an ‘other’ body, an ‘after body’, a ‘post-human’ body.
*Action hybride reactivates anesthetized sensitivities.
It positions itself facing the continuous aggression of a society constituted in a media spectacle, which denies ‘freedom of expression’. The artwork remains a trace and the body becomes memory.
*Action Hybride reacts to the stereotypical body of the mass image. It reveals the vulnerability of each one and everybody, it depicts the invisible, underexposed, fragilized body, all forms of sensibility that contemporary society obscures.
*Action Hybride questions identity and its transformation. The reflected-body, the hybridization, the metamorphosed images are all possibilities that open perspectives and allow another approach to reality.
*Action Hybride sees nudity as a resistance device. The skin, the veins, the blood participate in the flow of existence and of the human condition. And the naked body, the intimate or the desire support each of its artistic actions.
