Salomé Chatriot, Calcium Thirst
"Salomé Chatriot merges elements of technology with organic parts to create physical installations and virtual environments. In her work, physical processes like breathing and heart beating activate mechanical processes, resulting in a symbiosis between human bodies and technological devices. While refusing to embrace a prevailing pessimism about technological progress, she seeks for opportunities to expand our intimate relationships with technologies. In addition, she explores issues of identity, gender and sexuality. Her work has a distinctly erotic component, while it also challenges dominant narratives. For example, she has collaborated with Oil Productions, a team of girls creating ethical and dissident porn. Through her hybrid, disturbing and yet optimistic artistic language, Chatriot is capable of generating unconventional approaches of relating to technological tools."
