Rhizikon

Rhizikon is a condensed allegory – physical, visual and auditory – that aims to provoke sensations, sentiments, questioning, reverie and reflection on the concept of putting oneself into play – into danger. A piece on the relationship with risk – madness or necessity – which causes us to walk on the edge. Risk – the imminence of danger – is often triggered by a life force. The need to mobilise powerful resources in order to preserve one's existence often arises when this is threatened. In the same way, ancient initiation rites such as baptism consisted of submerging a person, keeping their head underwater until they almost drowned. On the brinks of death, an ancient, essential life force takes hold. This is a ‘rebirth’.
 As a trapeze artist, I have often asked myself what made me dedicate so much time to hanging from one arm, eight metres in the air. The fascination with limits – whose paradox is that they can always be pushed – the quest for a form of elation, the attempt to restore a weakening lust of life? (See D. Le Breton 1991 – 2002)
What are we searching for when we take a risk, what is this need that makes us stand on the edge of the void, well aware that we are courting danger? Attraction? Revulsion? Fascination? Where is the balance between excess safety and excess danger? Or rather, what is the perpetual imbalance – narrowly saving ourselves, though never completely? 

Chloé Moglia 


“It's about confronting death in a metaphorical way, making the threat almost accessible and avoiding it by taking precautions. Stabilising death in this way, defining the limits of its power, reinforces the feeling of identity for people who dare to attempt this challenge. Success breeds enthusiasm, a surge of meaning that corresponds to a symbolic effectiveness that restores more favourable foundations to existence, for a while at least.”


David Le Breton, Passions du risque, published by Métailié Sciences Humaines

Moglia, Chloé

Chloé Moglia was born in Perpignan. She grew up in the world of ceramics, fed by the interaction of earth, water and fire. She learnt trapeze at the CNAC, and the martial arts with Jean-Michel Chomet.

She quickly funded the company Moglice - Von Verx with Mélissa Von Vépy . Together, they created « Un certain endroit du ventre » (2001), « Temps Troubles » (2003), « I look up, I look down… » (2005) and they obtained the Award of the circus arts from the SACD in 2007. At this period they came across the work of the Company Fattoumi Lamoureux and participated in the researches of Kitsou Dubois on the movement with no gravity.

In 2009, she takes a new way and funds Rhizome in Brittany, integrates her practice of the martial arts in her artistic thinking and her confrontation to the void becomes another way of experimentation.
This confrontation generates meaning and offers silent questions forming the basis of her shows and performances.
Her solo creations are: « Nimbus » (2007), « Rhizikon » (2009), « Opus Corpus » (2012) and her collaborative creation are: « Le Vertige » (Vertigo-2012) with Olivia Rosenthal, « Aléas with five other aerial artist » (2014-2015). She started a new creation called « Carla » (trio) in 2015.

She also participated in Etonnistes #2 (2012 – replayed in 2015) proposed by Stéphanie Aubin from Manège of Reims, national scene.

Chloé Moglia is an associate artist with Centquatre -Paris, with the Agora Evry and Essonne national scene, Center of national monuments.
Rhizome is supported by the BNP Paribas Fundation, by Region Bretagne and by the Ministry of Culture (DRAC Bretagne) for the development of her projects.
