Extrait de naissance

1989, 26:00 minutes, colour, French


A man is talking, narrating, commenting, naming the objects and the locations, evoking unlikely souvenirs as if they were youth blocks still efficient in the actual adult subjectivity. This video goes back and forth from real life and imaginary, from past to present.

Une voix, un homme révit, il réinvente un passé, celui de ses affects. En mettant en scène un jeune garçon sans nom et sans époque, les auteurs abandonnent la logique chronologique ou biographique. Autant que le sujet, c'est le lieu, l'objet qui est scruté: le détail circonstantiel, l'incident fondateur.
