Reflections on women and the commercial use of women's bodies, and current depictions projected as absolute values. Choreography meets technology in this new project by Manon fait de la danse, inspired by online auction sites and exhibition spaces. Presented and orchestrated like objects in a sales catalogue, the Icônes (icons) are nestled deep inside a technological niche that transforms the representation of the body. Rather than be shown what there is to see, however, we draw on the auction for understanding and are inevitably invited to take a position on the commercial use of human bodies.
