“Break the system to go elsewhere, break to be reborn.”

Breaking away is a recurring event that punctuates our existence. Let’s go back to our origins: birth. When we come into the world, a rupture occurs as we leave our mother’s body. This is our first physical separation, the severing of the umbilical cord that connects us. Then, throughout our lives, we face ruptures, whether friendly, sentimental or linked to the loss of a loved one.

The number of artists who have been inspired to create by the break-up of love is considerable. These include Marina Abramović, who ends her relationship on the Great Wall of China, Tracey Emin, who exposes her break-up in her installation My bed, and Jordan Tiberio, who images bodies that have almost disappeared. All in all, break-ups are an omnipresent subject in life as well as in various artistic fields.
