poly-creation art platform
The rrose semoy association was founded in 2012 by Sylvain Paris and ssayan.
Sandra Chapron, a plastic and pyrotechnics artist, alias captain Xena, came to complete the team.
The rrose semoy name is linked to the association’s headquarters, in Haulmé (France), a small village by the river of Semoy.
The shape of the Semoy is all loops and twists, like every possible interlacing motif, snakes recalling the patterns present in the DNA, favourite themes of Sylvain Paris and ssayan in their common works.
The rrose rrolling the rr is an homage to the artist Marcel Duchamp, who created, in 1920, a fictional character named Rrose Sélavy, meaning Eros (Love) that’s life. Here, this character is symbolic of the desiring power of the art, the livingness of the artist, whose work is nothing else than a posture vis-à-vis the life and the existing world.
rrose semoy was the birthplace of the innuit & ssayan duo, through which the two artists have performed, wrote (texts, poems), made plastic and audio-visual artworks (paintings, drawings, comics, photos, videos, shows, dances and songs).
ssayan and Sylvain realised publications (books, postcards) and exhibitions inspired by their conceptual characters, innuit siniswichi and ssayan manga.
