She moves (Phase I)
2010-2013 (photography / video/ sculpture/ sound)

6000 photographs, approximately 2,300km selected routes in the congo basin rain forest.

An attempt to re-capture a feeling I had as a child, driving through these forests with my parents. An unknown spirit of moving trees.The mosaics created from her moving stills tend to stop or reduce  individual pictorial  movements, evoking the struggles between  basic impressions and the institutionalised norm.

The photographs were later on printed on transparent film and coated with epoxy resin.

“a suivre” (study)

2012-2013 (video installation)

“A suivre!” is a French expression that could be translated as to be continued, to be followed or to be listened to.
The question becomes “what is to be continued”, is it the events in the audio? / the piece itself? Or “what is to be followed closely? Is it the distorted dialogue? / the links between the ephemeral nature of the spoken word and smoke? / the basic idea that one breeds the other…or the visual elements with layers of abyss and beauty that questions the superficial appearance and what lies beneath…Is the apparent ephemeral really ephemeral?

How hot can an ephemeral political speech be and what amount of smoke can it breed?“

A suivre!, 2012, (33’33’’video loop, audio with overlapping excerpts from historic pro-conflict speeches of politicians, recorded between 1940 and 2012).
