by Jeanne Susplugas
2020
Winner of XR Orange Fondation Beaumarchais / SACD 2020

I will sleep when I’m dead is a dive into the brain, a navigation by sight amongst neurons and synapses. The visitor gets lost in an infinite maze and crosses paths with « thoughts » materialized by 2D and 3D drawings. An intimate head to head, closely psychoanalytical, that introduces to an intense and a unique experience.

This project is winner of the Bourse OrangeXR.

Concept 

« I will sleep when I’m dead » several words borrowed from Bon Jovi reveal a lot about Jeanne Susplugas’ work, the brain and our thoughts, so difficult to tame.

Thanks to the «techno-magic» of virtual reality, the viewer dives into a skull amongst neurons and synapses, gets lost in an infinite maze and crosses paths with «thoughts» materialized by drawings looking like pictograms. It is an intimate head to head, almost psychoanalytical which introduces an intense and unique experience.

Submerged in the brain, tortuous, sometimes foggy, the audience will have to follow, at their convenience several journeys related to their thoughts. According to a bundle of «narratives», everyone will be free to experience their own mental journey.

Scenography 


Depending on the possible available space, the experience can be presented as an installation (set + VR experience) or only as VR experience.

The visitor enters a primal space of experience, a minimal set, stylized, adaptable.

Statement 

The project is developed around the link between the house and the brain.

The brain is far from having revealed all its secrets and in order to understand its dysfunctions, it is essential to unravel its mysteries. Recent scientific studies should make it possible to find new ways of prevention or even treatment of neurodegenerative diseases or behavioral anomalies, as well as sensory deficits.

This project is based on scientific research that emerges in a sensitive and emotional way. It is above all a mental space, the nerve center of thought.

Whether it’s the artist’s hair (Hair, homage to Gordon Matta-Clark), tree branches (Arbre généalogique), synapses (In my brain) or molecules (Disco ball)..., it’s about ramifications.

Addictions and phobias are linked to the brain and nestle in loops that are difficult to get out of. Susplugas’ work evokes confinement and addiction, in its most diverse forms and very often from a psychological perspective.

The house is a recurring element in her work, as a symbol of intimacy, of self-reflection.
