In search of Eternity II: wall of wind

Closed on 24 September 2017
Tezukayama Gallery, Osaka, Japan

The project In Search of Eternity II takes place in Japan, among the cities of Osaka, Kyoto, and Tokyo. It features a symbolic tale about the birth of life on earth, inspired by a saying from the North American Sioux people, which invites us to imagine the spirits of the dead floating between the earth and the sky. This 12-minute video installation is in the form of a long travelling shot across the city, human beings, and the Japanese landscape. Everything seems frozen, despite the constant movement of the camera, leaving the impression that a spirit floats in the middle of the souls and the cities, in a space where time has stopped.

Exhibition curator: Emmanuelle de l’Écotais.
Prints by Okometa, Paris.
