Sirens

 

SIRENS  / video installation – 40 min looped – 2016
Faced with the immensity of the sea, a human chain silently proceeds. Men and women walk relentlessly but quietly towards the horizon. Guided by their instinct, these anonymous beings launch forth to their mysterious fate as if drawn by an irresistible song. They crash against the power of the elements, the rush of the waves, telling us they are alive. Soon, they fade away in an ever going flow.
