Mémoire blanche, La

1988, 08:00 minutes, colour, French & Russian


Although this short video essay is not part of the unique project Filmer l'humanité - whose fifth segment was produced in Montréal - its images are photographic in nature.
White is the total of all colours, all recollections. Further, white is nothing and it is purity. The fantasy of an untouched country and culture echoes the heavy heritage of the Russian culture.

Blanche est la somme de toutes les couleurs (locales), de tous les souvenirs en somme. Blanc est aussi rien, pureté. Le fantasme du pays et de la culture vierges fait ici écho au lourd héritage de la culture russe. Essai sur la lumière, sur l'héritage culturel. Mémoire blache comme neige, comme l'aube.
Ce court vidéo ne fait pas partie de l'ambitieuse série Filmer l'humanité dont le cinquième chapitre a été produit à Montréal. Le cadrage des images réfère quand même à cet aide-mémoire que constitue la photographie.
