AMNIOTIC SAC [fr. sac amniotique]
 
The Emergency Room has until now been shaped like an amniotic sac.
There is a motherly feeling of safety in it
(which could be wrong as we are supposed to organise revolutions).
Artists in the Emergency Room
are floating like twins in a foetus
sometimes on their own
independently to each other
sometimes they bump into each other
sometimes they together swim the same way
sharing the same amniotic liquid.
They can not be indifferent to each other.
They are a community of amnios.
If there are 23 artists in the room
at the same passage
it becomes a foetus rave.
In Emergency Room
while we are debating
we are floating.
Like astronauts in a weightless state.

We are in a claustrophobic environment
which feels safe
and dangerous
which may explode any minute
projecting all of us in different directions.
The bien être
to be in emergency room
despite aggressive debates
comes from the violence waiting outside.
Emergency Room is about getting ready for life
You have to get maximum vitamins (and knowledge) before.
There is a notion of permeability.
Alimentation comes through the wall.
The wall is strong
but permeable.
Even if the wall is rigid
it is elastic
soft.
It is probably the unpredictability that makes it elastic.
There is no sharp angles.
Artists can float
enjoying a status of weightlessness.
But surely must be well prepared and trained
if they don’t want to feel dizzy.
In the amnios of Emergency Room
you can bump into the parois.
You can bump into the walls
and at the same time have the feeling
that the outside world reserve you a lot of challenge.
You know very well that the security is very provisory.
