"Following a relationship break-up, Éléonore Saintagnan joined a self-discovery training course in Normandy. Based on techniques closed to tantrism and hypnosis, the training helps women to harness their orgasmic potential, and teaches them how to find a source of energy that enables them to lift weights of up to 600 kilos. By using this energy for artistic creation, the artist is currently engaged in the making of a series of performances, sculptures and photographs which give credibility to Freud’s theory according to which artistic creation is the sublimation of a sexual impulse (redirected towards socially acceptable activities). Here are three photographs of performances that took place in Normandy and in Paris. "
