Title -  Eros and Psyche both have wings, a female and a male sex

Year  -  2012

Length  -  17” loop

This video is a participation a Sidaction exhition - organism fighting for research on how to combapt AIDS - taking place at the Reflex Gallery in april 2012 in Paris.

Many artists were asked to make a drawing on the themes of angels or AIDS or whatever else they’d feel inspired by.

This drawing in motion is an interpretation of the myth Eros and Psyche, symbolic of love.  With the persistence of vision, Eros, a man with wings is mixed with Psyche, a woman, we now can see them both having wings and both sexes.

Aids can be seen as concerning love, both sexes, gay, lesbian, hetero and transvestite sexualities.

Still frame of Smoke © Miyoko Caubet march 2012


"Smoke, qui joue à cache-cache avec le spectateur en dévoilant un visage mystérieux entre deux nuages de fumée, rappelle la substance imprécise des rêves.
Au-delà de l’harmonie visuelle et thématique, l’artiste propose avant tout une expérience sensible.  Si l’imaginaire et le rêve sont au coeur de sa création, les territoires que Miyoko trace laissent toute interprétation et évasion possible…”

Year  -  2011

Length  -  2’

I was offered to make a video and display it at a gallery exhibition with other artists. 
"We were young and immortal," the name of the exhibit, resonated with me during my work with it, prompting me to respond to this idea and how I felt about it.

It made me think about how being a 32 year-old woman doesn’t feel like being young and immortal like I did when I was 19. Today I think differently than when I was younger, for example I make more definite choices and concentrate more energy on my works and their realization.

In fact, I’ve been thinking about how short life is, of how close the possibility of death is to me as I reached my 30’s.

What if we were immortal? Would there be any pressure for us to achieve our dreams? Would we even attempt to respond to that mischievous little voice in all of our heads that asks, “What are you waiting for?” Is death that which spurs us to overcome ourselves?

With this video, I wanted to create a dialgue with the people in the gallery through this question. I also wanted the form of the video to be open enough for various interpretations and responses from the onlooker’s present state of mind. Would they laugh at the silliness of the video by making them wait until a questions appears slowly from behind a cloud? Would they feel touched, surprised, or even threatened by this question?

It was the first time, although not the last, that I enjoyed creating a piece that openly asks an existential question, but which also laughs at itself at the same time.

Title -  Tattoo close-up

Year  -  2011

Length  -  30’ loop

April 7th=>May 15th, 2011  -  10am=>7pm  -  At Reflex Gallery (Paris 1 - Louvre-Rivoli)

"Tattoo close-up" is a video scenography order by the Reflex Gallery as an addition to their photo and tattoo drawing exhibit entitled “Icon Tattoo”.
Images of close-ups of tattoos move slowly along the surface of mannequins’ bodies, giving the tattoos a kind of mobility that they normally don’t have.
The breathtaking tattoos were painstakingly designed by Luan Vo Quang from Migoii Paris.
