Faye Formisano – They Dream in My Bones – Insemnopedy II – France
They Dream in My Bones – Insemnopedy II is a transfixing meditation and a stirring experiential proposition that explores what fabric might bind the physical and metaphysical, and how to extract dreams from an unknown skeleton. A dreamy, minimalist scientific fable rendered in black and white, They Dream in My Bones incorporates the viscerality of textile dynamics with 3D drawings and images shot with a traditional camera.
With textile as her language, dance and music as her influence, drawing as her core practice, and fantasy as her aesthetic, Faye Formisano makes films, VR installations, and performances. Highly inspired by literature and the scientific imagination, most of her stories are fables featuring ghostly figures in our contemporary world to explore the boundaries of identities, all marked by the undone bond, the loss of reference points, and the effects of violence.
