St Yrieix la Perche
Two video performances
In English a ballad is a song – une ballade in French is both a walk and a song
- Every footprint is a song...the song of life...painted on the sand...painted in air…
(Nanao Sakaki 1976)
These two single take video performances uses the voice, drawing/writing and live electronics to explore one of life most defining gesture, walking, understood here as a simultaneous act of writing and reading (space). Each step reads the ground and leaves a trace.
They were performed and shot in my studio on two consecutive summer days, while listening to the radio.
