Maldoror

Images · 2019 · collaboration with Benjamin Lazar

After Heptaméron, second collaboration with Benjamin Lazar for his next show 'Maldoror', based on the famous book of Lautréamont, and for which he invited me to make and screen images.

Mysterious, untamed, burning and multiple: the work of the Comte de Lautréamont was at first the revolt of a young man sitting at his piano in a Parisian hotel room in the middle of the nineteenth century. Starting from this initial image, Benjamin Lazar embarks, in words and in music, to meet the character of Maldoror and the world he lives, and re-enchant the famous Chants de Maldoror.
