Through this performance, I embody my two steps (re)claiming: I am now working as an artist.

It also encapsulates my experience of drawing as an outside x inside process.

In other words, Bleu de chauffe is a never-ending and self-sufficient and a extra empowering drawing x embodiment ritual.

One may see a discreet yet purposeful tribute to manual workers (and if u ask: a counter-reference to Klein's use of female bodies as objects).


As of December 2020, I have performed Bleu de Chauffe twelve times
