“Throughout the performances of Wijckaert, a bomb, we have invited her closest collaborators to create a short form with Martine Wijckaert as ‘subject’ and ‘object’. Each of them will take part in this difficult and stimulating exercise of “winking” at Martine Wijckaert. When the creator becomes a creature… Under their particular gaze, Martine will lend herself to this game which promises beautiful surprises. It is in an extremely short and lively time that these daily appointments will be repeated and proposed. From then on, here is the program of all the participants who, day by day, will adapt Martine to their personal sauce. “
