Choniques de l’éphémère / Chronicles of Fugacious

 

Amidst the photographic experience is this deep desire to stop time in order to hold on to the joy and the people we love; to stop the growing process; to hang on to our experiences that end too quickly.  Chronicles of the Ephemeral explores the possibility of movements within the frozen in time photographic context.

The spectators are called upon to recreate ten passed experiences by reuniting the scattered fragments of the recollection, in the form of texts, music and projections.  These fragments are independently created, but are presented simultaneously to translate, in a polyphonic mode, the different dimensions of a same memory.
