My eyes are gone - Film - 17min - 2017

présenté dans le cadre de l'exposition panorama 19


My Eyes are gone is inspired by a true story. After surviving a traffic accident and after seeing the woman he loved die from ovarian cancer, Félix recalls the memories of his own injured and sick body. In slow, circular panoramic shots, the camera travels, defines, discovers the space of a large apartment shrouded in shadowy light. It’s in this labyrinthine and inextricable space, while simultaneously in Félix’s body (which delimits the immobile physical space of the site), that his words circumscribe a complex mental space shaped by the obsession with organising and staging his own disappearance.
