‘abîme’ is a creation revolving around the notion of power, the voluntary submission of masses to a leader, an exploration of freedom and identity. How do ordinary men become ‘executive agents of an external power’, as revealed by the experiments of Stanley Milgram on obedience? The project is interested in the complexity of extreme manifestations, analysing them without drawing moral conclusions.
