Bringing a museum home
The user can consult it whenever he/she wants (no wifi needed once downloaded, it stays on the iPad and iPhone as long as needed).

COPENHAGEN.- le déserteur a digital exhibition and performative installation curated by Sylvain Souklaye. Art must continue to exist during the current situation but in a more innovative way.

le déserteur is a ticket for a unique, immersive and sensory experience via a range of artistic and literary experiments. le déserteur brings a museum home.

The app consists of two consecutive exhibition rooms "Anonymous bodies" & "Labyrinths". By joining this journey, the user will find works of art curated for him/her: films, writings in two languages (English and French), photographs, an original soundtrack and a tantalising graphic design. This is the work of 30 artists from around the world: Brazil, Japan, Denmark, Italy, United States and France.

le déserteur is the subject of a narrative, a work of art.

The user can consult it whenever he/she wants (no wifi needed once downloaded, it stays on the iPad and iPhone as long as needed). Day or night (with both reading modes), at home with headphones on, I just recommend the user to be comfortable, follow his/her emotions and enjoy the journey... Among the anonymous bodies, the user might loose his/her way in our labyrinths.

The performative installation le déserteur started as an immersive and emotional art experience, then became an interactive narrative based on gamification, now it is time to unfold its true purpose.

With the feature "my journey" Sylvain Souklaye introduces a tailor-made art collection curated by the user, maybe the visitor and hopefully the human.

Sylvain Souklaye is a French performance and installation artist obsessed with sampling intimacies about people who don't belong to a determinate identity, gender, class, colour or nationality. His methods characteristically involve intense physical acts as well as the use of unsettling intimacy
