Local Time : A Problem of Memory
For this project, inspired by the exhibition’s title, “Down Through The Needle’s Eye,” I began to imagine the making of a video piece that would take the form of a kind of minor reflection, before a line of thought was at hand to guide this exploration, as it is moved to become acquainted with a very local time.
And this through the glimpses and traces of a history before us, which would include fragments gleaned from walking around the area (and simply looking, and filming, what is there -- and doing this on a number of occasions), interwoven with fragments that emerge through conversations taking place with people whose lives open onto this history in various ways.
It would be close to something like a preliminary measure, far from explanation.
An invitation, if anything at all.
