Two moments of an exceptional conversation with Esther Ferrer for people studying or completing art schools, and young artists involved in performance art.
Do not hesitate to come with a lot of questions, reflections, doubts… about your practices, hers, those of other performers, whether in terms of daily practice, creation, diffusion, relationships, traces…, in solo or in collaboration… !

From the 1970s onwards, she devoted part of her activity to visual arts: reworked photographs, installations, paintings based on the series of prime numbers, objects…
