VANITES

a video triptych of contemporary vanities inspired by
Hans Memling's Triptych of Earthly Vanity and Divine Salvation

It's interpreted as a loop: the left panel represents the past, the middle one the present and
the right one the future.
The PAST figures a certain iconography of the most notable ideals that affected Occident until today :
the Holy Family, Antiquity and Nature.
The PRESENT is an interpretation of ideals and fantasies projected on us today.
The FUTURE is unseen : it's the void, death, an interrogation.
