Shortfilm, 4min, 2020
The fragmentary film is an associative approach to the state of Déréalité. Déréalité is a state of withdrawl of reality and sentiment of absence; a disconnection of the people and objects around us. This condition was first described by Holocaust survivors in the United States. »I walk back and forth in my room: the various objects - whose familiarity usually comforts me - the gray roofs, the noises of the city, everything seems inert to me, cut off, thunderstruck – like a waste planet, a Nature uninhabited by man«, describes the french philosopher Roland Barthes in his book Fragments d'un discours amoureux.
The world is full without me […] the world plays at living behind a glass partition; the world is in an aquarium; I see everything close up and yet cut off, made of some other substance ; I keep falling outside myself, without dizziness, without blur, into precision. as if I were drugged. "Oh, when this splendid Nature, spread out here before me, appears as frozen as a varnished miniature . . ."«
