Dérive, 26/04/2014 [Drift 2014.04.26] (2014), HD video 16:9, color, 20 min
I let myself drift on board of a kayak, down a stretch of the river L’Ille, supposed not to be navigable. I let myself go with the flow, which determines what I record.
In collobaration with Frédéric Dupont
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 ?
