FALL (vocabulaire)

Blanca Casas Brullet

2001, 04:30 minutes, colour, french & english


Fall is a wandering of Blanca Casas Brullet around Toronto discovering this city, unknown at the time for the artist, while looking for discarded clothing on the streets; those objects, presented as still lives, are juxtaposed with an everyday life that ignores them, with the pedestrians' bodies, with the vehicles in movement: a background in movement. The double meaning of the title, autumn and falling down, refers to them and the the season the film was shot. The artist alternates the clothing images with messages addressed to the city inhabitants and supposed to regulate life and movement in the city. In the soundtrack she plays to look through dictionaries and makes this film a sort of basic vocabulary, a first image of Toronto and an approach to those notions of skin and moulting that she has already explored in her previous works confronted to the idea of urban life.
