Men of Western culture live on chairs. Unable to limit their bodies to the seated position and their desire for movement, some tribes reject the sedentary lifestyle and thus, try to domesticate the chair. Above all, they adapt their mobility and their behavior to the possibility of this body flexion, in search of a new form of existence, of a new identity.

Les hommes de culture occidentale vivent sur des chaises. Ne pouvant limiter leur corps à la position assise et leur envie de mouvement, certaines peuplades refusent la sédentarité, et tentent alors de domestiquer la chaise. Ils adaptent, en tout lieu et à chaque instant, leur mobilité et leur comportement aux possibilités de cette flexion du corps, à la recherche d’ une nouvelle forme d’existence, d’une nouvelle identité.
