La vie en close is a small image-inmovement collection. It is about things that come into life, unfold, inflate, pass by, close and die. It is about the constructed presence of things in hyper proximity. It is about unanimated bodies in close up. An old-fashionable slide projection. a personal archive. a breviary. a thorn, a stick, an arrow. a gun, a revolution, a prison, weight. an action. to hurt, to pierce, to gild, to love. and why to last would be better than to burn? it would be a fright. a sigh, a shadow, a leftover. an oblation. a sorrow, a thank you letter. a bill, a plant, a sign. an extension cord, a cat, a mouth, a bubble, a butterfly. a cat with a butterfly in its mouth. a drivel, a bomb and Brigitte Bardot.
