LE GARAGE (en janvier)

LE GARAGE (en janvier), video (duration variable, max 5h)

Before January 2016, from my window, I could see a bright rectangle in the middle of the city. It was a private garage.
Since I saw it from the first time, I had the desire to draw colour volumes and lines in this white stage embed in the middle of Brussels.
In January 2016 I saw a building company planned to build up new floors changing this privileged scenery of the city view.
The urgency of the vanishing of this abstract stage, the garage, provoked me a reaction.
For 8 days, I filmed bodies moving on this stage, which changed day by day.
At the beginning it was clear and still empty but little by little scaffoldings, pillars and tarpaulins modified its configuration.
Others and me filmed from the window giving the direction to the performers with a walkie-talkie.
LE GARAGE (en janvier) is a surrealistic document, a souvenir of a city view and a drawing in motion.
