This is a lil video of the work i've made during a

two-week residency at Moulin de la Croix in August

2020. it's recorded a few days before the

opening of the group show. My work comprises

collages of images taken in 2004 and 2005 while

I was learning photography by myself.

There are 36 collages and 36 notes written before

and while being at Le Moulin.

Inspo from a famous filmmaker, written around 1965,

thinking of the film i'm doin now.

"I would also like to do a huge film about France;

it would include everything and it would last between

48 to 76 hours.

It would come in episodes, and each episode could

be shown

for one or two weeks. If we rented a cinema for a year,

it could be done. Everything is feasible.

To show everything has always been the temptation

for writers in their vast novels. I would show people

going to the cinema, and you would see the film they

are seeing. Three days later, at the theatre, you would

see the play they are watching. You would see someone

whose job was interviewing people, and you would see

their interviews. We would interview everybody,

from Sartre to the Minister of War, from workmen

to peasants in Cantal. There would also be sport:

racing, athletics, etc. We would have to organize a basic

principle or structure, then go off in all directions.

Shooting would take two to three years. "
