For the re-edition of its residency program in Montpellier, Glassbox-Sud invites Claire Guetta to develop the House of Crystal project

House of Crystal is a pseudo-therapeutic device at the intersection of dance, video and installation. A syncretism merging lithotherapy and ballroom culture, House of Crystal is a visual ritual that intends to respond to ambient anxieties with the power of gems and voguing.

After graduating from the Beaux-Arts de Rennes in 2017, Claire Guetta appropriates the symbols of popular culture in order to better react to them in parodic worlds, notably through her fantasy double – a witch-healer named Claire Voyance.

This exhibition is made possible thanks to the support of DRAC Occitanie. We also thank our partners for this project: La Halle Tropisme and the MOCO ESBA. We finally thank Collectif In Extremis for their welcoming.
