“I have been staying in a four-star spa hotel in remote Croatia for forty days now, at a gathering of people who are in search of Happiness, convinced that they live in a world that is INFINITELY LIVING. Within the group, they each have a transitional status: as I am new, I am automatically DOG, “a love machine”, and my number is 23. At the beginning, DOG (23) did not know anyone, and soon COACH, PIRATE and ANGEL 92Kcal shared their advice, beliefs and practices with them. Today, DOG (23) meets LIQUID VIRGIN, a spectral figure of the movement. Her presence is manifested by a breath called YOLO, a kind of primordial atmosphere, a contact like a “big passing hit” that DOG (23) will have no choice but to inhale and spit out.”

“The featurings are not really works in progress
They are rather like the chapters of a novel
or the ALIEN 1 / ALIEN 2 / ALIEN 3 saga
or like when Doc Gyneco asks Bernard Tapie, Renaud or Johnny Hallyday to sing with him.
And for the moment I am presenting each one separately, because a featuring lasts between 50 minutes and one hour.
Each featuring is a meeting between DOG (23) and another mongrel species encountered in the Croatian spa.
