Anaïs Héraud (b. 1988) is a performance and visual artist living and working in Berlin. She has an MFA in painting and performance art from the college of visual art E.N.S.A.V. Lacambre, Brussels.
Her research is based around the aesthetical investigation of emotions and sensations.
This performance is part of her series of Odems.
Odem is an old German word used in poetry to say to breath or Inspiration.
It’s also really closed to the word Oedem, meaning Oedema, this “allergic event” that can bring you to overlie.
“For this performance, I’m working with erotic objects of mass production.
I believe that desire is the impulse for creativity.
Working on my own desire’s aesthetic is a way for me to fight against its normative standard”.
