Transmission, is a body of work that investigate the politics of memory in Postcolonial France, regarding the Algerian War of Independence (1954-1962). The 15 min video on the TV monitor displays an archival footage of the official recognition of the Algerian War of Independence at the French assembly in 2000, 38 years after its ending, mixed with the transmission of a popular nationalist music TV show.
The core of my art practice addresses the idea of the dislocated body, the alienated body and the disruption in the casual or mundane world. My work considers the relationship of the social world to the private, psychological one. This piece is a good depiction of my interests, as we are exposed to the stretch between the domestic scale to the government's scale. I believe in Henri Bergson's time theory that duration is ineffable and can only be shown indirectly through images that can never reveal a complete picture. It can only be grasped through a simple intuition of the imagination. How does the past cohabits with the present through the context of this installation and through this character's behavior?
