“The vibrant fruitiness on top conveys the energy and excitement one gets from smelling alone. The heart of the fragrance gets a little dark, representing the moment when the sense of smell is lost, while the strong, sweet and animalic dry down symbolizes a sexual arousal when the sense of smell is finally regained” - David Apel
FOLIE À PLUSIEURS / PERFORMANCE
Time, Space, Body, Audience. A performance series conceived through a series of olfactive happenings and collaborations. For each performance a scent is developed to aid the experience of a specific body of work. Some of these fragrances are offered for sale at select museums shops and at Galerie Folie, and others only available on location exclusively for guest that attend each show.
»Ol·fac·to PHILIA« consists of 18 sexual expressions experienced through sound, performance and scent. Each fragrance translates a specific paraphilic experience taken from the personal accounts of 18 different individuals. These fragrances chart the sensory and emotional experience associated with each individual’s unusual erotic impulse. The project aims to expand audiences sensorial appreciation for intimacy and to stimulate an openness towards alternative modes of sensuality.
