N*gerzoenen in Frankrijk/ N*gro Kisses in France 2018. Video projection with sound; 23 minPeople can be different from what you think of them at first glance. My work originates from my fascination for people and their behavior. When you pass someone on the street, you will immediately and unconsciously judge this person.This can lead to miscommunication, incomprehension and sometimes even racism. For a long time, I was convinced that my father and grandmother had racist convictions based on these principles. Through their statements they expressed a one-sided view of society.
If there are already misunderstandings among my own family, how can we completely understand an unknown culture? This film is not a pamphlet meant to promote broad-mindedness but a study of man, his behaviour and judgement. It was shot on my grandparents' farm in Mid-France. They moved there years ago and I used to go there many times when I was a child.If you want to see the whole film, don't hesitate and contact me.
