Looped single channel video projection
The video “Anna” - inspired from the heroine Anna of Antonioni’s “l’Aventurra” - questions the relationship between the exhaustion of ones self plagued by internal wanderings and a given space. A distraught figure tries to dig tirelessly a hole in the sand : neither the rising tide nor the howling wind discourage her vain quest. As the apparent aimless idle Sisyphus, she lets time go by. A sense of effort emerges paradoxically from her gesture.
Screened at international video art festival Traverse Vidéo, Oeil d'Oodaaq, Hanover Project Artists' Video Festival and group show at Des Lee Gallery curated by Ellen Harvey in Saint Louis, Missouri.
