Voogt – Madely Schott & Phabrice Petitdemange
Voogt was born out of a meeting between Madely Schott and Phabrice Petitdemange in Brussels in 2016. They are currently based in Marseille and are members of the ateliers Jeanne Barret. Madely Schott is a performer and visual artist. Phabrice Petitdemange is an author/composer, performer and visual artist.
Voogt proposes installations/performances with variable geometries, imagining new personal and collective mythologies. It’s a singular and protean writing guided by the spirit of gleaning, DIY and hybridization.
Voogt is deployed at the crossroads of visual arts, video, performance and music to bring out a dreamlike reality. Voogt makes its projects evolve in line with the surrounding context.
Between September and November 2018, Voogt, the duo made up of Madely Schott and Phabrice Petitdemange, took over an abandoned campsite adjacent to a beach littered with plastic remains layered with the ebb and flow of the Mediterranean Sea. This playground, deserted for twenty years, was initially called Camp Gournia Moon. Equipped with a solar panel to ensure a minimum of autonomy, they set out to clean up, slowly but surely, the beach.
Immersed in this post-apocalyptic setting isolated from the synergy of everyday life, they decided to film this quest on the basis of the following premise: « The human has conquered himself. Two survivors face the vestiges of a world of which they have only vague memories. »
