These layers of memory of history great and small, present and past, and knowledge and emotion are crystallized in works which are like so many plastic fossils. Together these nine short videos tell us everything and nothing.
Ces vestiges voyers illustrent les usages et les destinations.
Otherwise put, as much with places, objects and forms of matter as their accumulated narratives. The films were made with a small camera. Le chemin lie et relie les hommes qui marchent. Firstly because of his photographs showing drug-using friends, reminding me of my own years lost to stupidity and my own friends lost.

From time to time we witness the birth of colour, for instance in a video showing a singer performing: the original image was so dark that it had to be brightened. If there is a share of non-control, hunch, and even a delegation of the artistic decision to contingency, fatality or chance, there is also a whole clandestine network of personal and universal histories as well as references to art history which pierce the surface of things.
