Le Salon (The Living Room)

"Le Salon brings us to the edge of a situation. Leaving us to grapple carefully. Narration arrives through despondent lines in soft refrain. A voice coming to terms with its own words. The house acts as a maze, a forgotten space, now inhabited by partial subjects; all aberrations of figure, who now furnish instead of grace, adorn instead of present. A cold world touched by impetus, Le Salon remembers what it once was."

Director Statement

This is my very first narrative essay. I wanted to invest an empty space and explore bodies trying to fit back in some memory, trying to remember, fusion with space...This work is an attempt approching femicides, about women left aside of society, abandoned like old pieces of furniture...trying to fit in, fit back into, these are the notions I wanted to explore in this short.
