“For over 25 years, I have been creating short-form films and videos. When Vidéographe approached me to present a “carte blanche” screening at Dazibao, I decided to simply present a series of short works one after the other. These videos have never been presented together before. This opportunity allowed me to reflect on the commonalities and differences between the pieces I have created over the years.
I have always been fascinated by the lives of others. I feverishly read biographies, personal essays and works of autofiction. In becoming a voyeur in the intimacy of other people, the onlooker can relate, empathize and start to understand oneself. One can also fantasize. As a philosopher once said: “The true story is the history of desire”.”
