JE NE SAIS JAMAIS OÙ JE SUIS | audio-video installation | 2008 | (demo)

  < >

Helsinki (Finlande) and Montréal (Québec). Soundtrack made up of a woman reading a list of street names in Finnish and another woman trying to repeat them correctly. In this video installation, I explore the feeling of vertigo and the sense of having lost all one’s bearings when thrust into a new environment, a new culture and a new language. This slow litany draws the viewer into an imaginary and contemplative journey.

Voices: Pirjetta Brander et Claudette Lemay.

Presented at HIAP, Helsinki (Finlande) in 2008.

Thanks to Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Finnish Artists' Studio Foundation.
