Train, Le

1985, 05:45 minutes, colour

Le Train is an allegorical tale. The life of the railwayman has come to a halt at just the same place as his locomotive. A place between memory and imagination, where the viewer can join in the poetic fiction. The work, with no music, weaves a soundtrack at once impressionistic and symbolic.

Un cheminot arrive à une halte dans sa vie, au même point d'arrêt que sa locomotive. A un endroit situé entre la mémoire et l'imaginaire, le spectateur peut s'intégrer à la fiction poétique ne contient aucune musique: seule une bande sonore, à la fois impressionniste et symboliste, traverse l'oeuvre. En cette fin de décennie qui a donné naissance à ce classique de l'histoire de la vidéo, le questionnement du personnage est perçu comme représentatif de la problématique propre du medium.
