Site specific walk performance. 2015
Les Aventures de Super Martin (The Super Martin's Adventures) is an opportunity for citizens of fully embrace the environmental challenge not only our planet but also for our own future and our relationships with others.
"The essential question is: what should we turn? The environment to suit the man, or the man to fit the environment? Should we give the man artificial and sophisticated ways that will help him survive or adapt its organization to the survival conditions offered by the environment? " (Yona Friedman in The Architecture of Survival).
In this vision, we propose a walk in the city where the public is invited to follow Super Martin.
The idea was born of our common imagination of childhood superheroes who save the world. Superman, Spiderman make the difference and still fighting the bad guys.
We turn this super power image to humorously point the causes and consequences of our behavior on our environment.
Our actions are directly responsible for the preservation or non-preservation of our ecosystem. For there to be a dialogue between man and his environment, man must begin to question his surroundings: his space but also other men who inhabit this space.
We play on the moment and the context that is offered to us and comes to us.
This project has been realized as part of the Global Climate Festival ArtCop21 2015 in Paris.
