Annotation is a performative video poem that started with reflection on a text by French writer Charles Péguy (1873 - 1914). In Oeuvres Posthumes, Péguy says God maybe likes more those who suffer the truth more than those who speak the truth.
Péguy wrote that history has long arms and no arms. In the digital age, history is written and rewritten. As we access all of the histories, the truth is sometimes reshuffled. Sometimes, the deeper we dig, the less we can know as there are more versions than reliable facts.
The text I have written speaks of history and its consequences. A long armed, zombie-like figure wanders aimlessly through an abandoned tennis court. The video wants to posit the question: “What can one individual do?”
