|I ask the couples,
real or coming together just for the occasion, to make a pause in their
walk through the village, to remove their shoes, and to relax in the
water of the fountain. Then I ask them to improvise or to invent an
intersubjective language of communication with their feet.
A whole gamut of behaviour is displayed, from devouring love to intense
shyness. The energy of the couple in love is reflected in the
imaginative quality of their games and their complicity.
The mute language of feet can reveal better than words the state of
their love story, the success of their inter-racial relationship,
especially between couples of different nationalities whom I asked to
take part; hence the play between different skin-colors.
