The origin and loss of meaning" 2008 - 2014
In these video works, I wish to examine different situations where being young is to be in a state of emergency.
A type of diagnosis. How will they survive adolescence? Where is their private life?
Is there a defined space to recover. And where?
In the time they define a room their life gets meaning.
It's about two states:
A state where they know what to do, and while they do it they forget everything else, life gets a whole different meaning. A state of trance.
And the other is their common reality.
This is when you have a strong sense of meaning.
Or a ritualized behavior that helps them to get through everyday life.
