Effacer (Remake), 2014 S

ingle-channel video installation, 1 min 40 sec, color, mute


"Effacer (Remake)" is a remake of a lost video made in 2012 with the actor and costume designer Larbi Yacoubi. The artist recreated the same scenes with the same actor. But the new version shows variations caused by the passage of time and its effects on Yacoubi, who sets up in his office in order to erase his journals.

The video is a meditation on age, memory, the fragility of technology and on the desire to recommence.
