A FRAGILE TENSION - 2017

Video installation for two synchronized images, 19’40

A fragile tension is the completion of a process made of several steps, that first consisted in the making of two invididual artworks : Nothing but earth, drier and drier and The shape of its body with the excess of dust. Conceived as a diptych, this work puts side by side two situations and territories as the countershot of each other : a man who left aboard a cargo ship in search of a new world, two men who stayed behind waiting for the scout to show the way ; a cargo ship on the high seas, an arid land ; two kurdish speaking men, a french speaking man ; but the same radio transmitter that allows for contact, and that slowly gets lost, and most of all a shared universal stake : the necessity to believe.

CREDITS – Mehmet Korkut, Mazlum Adıgüzel, Adrien Dantou & Baver Doğanay. Traduction kurde par Kawa Nemir.

film 21 minutes / installation

A symbiotic love unites TWO with ONE, two women living a contemporary house plunged into an infinite night. Day after day, terrifying and cosmic dreams disturb TWO’s sleep. As a result, the whole house gets shaken. First, ONE tries to reassure TWO. But she soon understands that the drawings she secretly produces and that prepare a radical action she’s about to commit are behind the dreams devastating TWO. Despite her love, ONE achieves her project. Under the gaze of her beloved passing away, ONE gives birth to the daylight, and dies in her turn, irreconcilable with the world she just let emerge and that announces humanity.

RIEN QUE DE LA TERRE, ET DE PLUS EN PLUS SÈCHE - 2016

vidéo, 15 min 50, 4k, son stéréo

Two men are settled in an inhospitable land waiting for a scout to come back. He has gone in search of a new land where life would again be possible. The two teams keep in contact thanks to radio transmitters. The scout regularly gives news, telling his journey and the infinite desert that more and more surrounds him. All day long, the two men stayed behind are waiting for the scout to give news. Unfortunately, the quality of the signal in the radio transmitter is getting bad. Interferences appear until the voice completely disappears. The two men have lost contact with the scout and now face their own responsibility : should they stay behind ? should they, in their turn, throw themselves into the desert in search of the new land ?

CREDITS - with Mehmet Korkut, Mazlum Adıgüzel & Bawer Doğanay. Kurdish translation by Kawa Nemir.
