Museum of a Memory
Video HDV, 16/9 color and black & white 7'15" with audio, 2009

Museum of a memory is based on the script of

The Jetty (1962) ; a “photo-roman” movie by

Chris Marker where a man can time travel to the past by conjuring specific powerful memories, in order

to change the future. The artist produces a new flash-back herself by filming again, shot after shot, the main scene where the original protagonists met

in the Natural History Museum of Paris.

Instead of a black and white diaporama, there are video shots with evaporating colors and hesitating stillness. We are eye to eye with the fluctuant frontiers between man and animal, moving and unmoving, life and death, real and fantasy, memory and forgiveness, original and copy.
