SORTIR AU JOUR
The video installation SORTIR AU JOUR opens a poetic eschatology based on Egyptian mythology and the concept of entropy. Including sculpture, dance, sound art and text, the two 44-minutes films composing the installation stage visions of a world slowly slipping towards a state of absolute indifferentiation; a state of maximal entropy which reflects in the Nun, the primordial ocean in the tradition of Ancient Egypt.
SORTIR AU JOUR was premiered in Toni-Areal (Zurich) on the 13th of January 2023. A publication of the same name gathering reflections, fictions, sketches, illustrations and documentation of the project was produced alongside the video installation; (with texts partly in French and partly in English). A digital version of this publication can be found below (contact me if you're interested in getting a physical copy).
The project will be shown in ZHdK for the Diplome 23 exhibition, in an one-channel version of 53 minutes. The publication will be available for consultation as well.
