autopsy.glass is an audiovisual performance that explores the sonic, visual and symbolic potential of the wine glass. Through live manipulations, sometimes delicate, sometimes violent, the performer builds a musical and luminous universe made out of resonances and debris, catalysing that peculiar tension associated with anticipated destruction.

With this project, Bleau wishes to further her experiments with tension, risk and anticipation in audiovisual performances. With autopsy.glass, the artist wants to take this idea of danger, present in previous works, even further, by precariously manipulating, or downright destroying fragile objects, not only to engage physically the spectator but also to create rich sonic soundscapes. She has chosen the object of the wine glass as a symbol of fragility: it is deeply associated with a fear of breaking, that most people have experienced in their daily lives.
