Pièce distinguée Nº59 unfolds spontaneously in natural spaces as one would find a lost jewel in a puddle of mud. It is part of an internal series of the eponymous project, in which liquid paint spills on bodies and stains them irreparably. While in the three previous pieces, colour evoked mineral or organic elements, this time Pièce distinguée Nº59 apprehends the immateriality of light. It takes place without electricity, with natural light only, to the sound of the city. Just before dusk, a couple entirely covered in gold, reflects the last rays of the sun. The piece plays with the multiple meanings of gold, in a ritual both luxurious and primitive.
