// Since there is a wall, what is happening behind? // Jean Tardieu, Un mot pour un autre


History teaches us that the screen was originally used to hide the naked body, to decorate a room +. Described in these terms, this figuration
of the screen is about the available space of the accomodation: a small space necesseraly generates multiple uses of a same room.

It is, as well, the object of a show: the user is hiding his body, and the person who is in the room at the very same moment can guess,
thanks to visual and noisy hints, the steps the user is experimenting - putting off the first layer of clothes a last one. Thus, a screen
is not only about hiding the naked body and decorating or, a room, but more deeply, it expresses about desire.

Déshabillez-moi consists in pushing as far as possible the basic meaning of the screen. The simple joists structure, when not used, is naked.
And because no added element except clothes is necessary, it becomes a receptacle for it: Déshabillez-moi constitutes the skeleton of the screen.
That is to say, it is itself built while you are using it: inverting the traditional use and aspect of the screen, it is an anti-apparatus.
