About the Event

Œstetik n.f. (du grec οἰσθησιs / œsthesis) Animal caractérisé par la présence de quatre membres distincts et pourtant indissociables. Sa singularité réside dans ses facultés acoustiques particulièrement développées. Doté d’une trompe, il compte également des cordes et membranes qu’il frappe, frotte et percute de ses nombreuses mandibules, dessinant ainsi de fascinants paysages sonores. Une corrélation certaine a été établie entre les sons inouïs qu’il produit et ceux qu’il perçoit. Si son comportement semble parfois prémédité, il relève souvent de l’improvisation. Très sensible aux espaces dans lesquels il évolue, il aime le tonnerre, la pluie et la poésie. Explorateur friand de nouvelles découvertes, il passe cependant la majeure partie de son temps à rêver.

Œstetik n. (from the Greek οἰσθησιs / œsthesis) An animal characterized by four distinct but inseparable limbs. It is distinguished by its particularly developed acoustic abilities. Possessing a prehensile trunk, it is also equally noted for its multiple wings and strings, which it regularly rubs, taps, and hits to produce fascinating soundscapes. A clear correlation has been established between the prodigious sound it emits, and its perception thereof. While seemingly premeditated, his behaviour is often improvised. Very sensitive to the spaces in which it grows, it enjoys thunder, rain, and poetry. It is a consummate explorer - it is eager for new discoveries, and thus spends most of its time dreaming.
