  • Total duration: 7 min
  • A film about failed gestures and absences that suck up all the space.

    A film about unexpected failures, lost sub-text and opportunities that slip between our fingers.

    When the relationship with the other (and one’s self) becomes a net with too-large holes that let meaning slip away at the exact moment we try to grasp it.

    Presque is a videodance based on processes of accumulation and (re)composition work of the frame, which gives the film its distinct visual mood. Images are fragmented, repeated and superimposed on each other, interrupted and suspended. This project stands on the border between visual art, film and dance, with a kinesthesia that takes on a particular form: a poetic language that redefines the notion of “choreography” on-screen and in direct relation to the editing. The work unfolds in fragments, in a dramatic edit that is still continuous and fluid.
