les chaussettes

 

Les Chaussettes (2011)

Single-channel, projection. 3'30. Color, Sound. Dimension variable.

Les Chaussettes is part of ongoing series of actions starting from very simple gestures that are turned into absurdity through repetition.
A daily gesture to protect our body : putting our socks on.
What does happen if we repeat it ? A failure.
A metaphor of the absurdity of over-protection and accumulation.
