With artists and sound-engineers Samuel Racine and Frédéric Dupont, we recorded the sound of the sheets of metal of a gardening house. At times noisy, at other times percussive, the performance pays a resounding tribute to the beauty of the material and its assemblage.
In 2012, I began working in the Prairies Saint-Martin, a rapidly changing neighbourhood in Rennes, France, that will soon be changed into a public park. Beyond its local anchoring but also thanks to it, this project raises questions about the circumstances and the modalites of urban renewal. It also asks what it means to represent a place with fragments of it, be it with photography, video, sound, performance, etc. What is the role and what are the tools of a documentary project, and what are the circumstances and the temporality for its communication ?
