Presented on February 11-12-13 2016, Montreal, at Usine C / Copresentation of Tangente + Temps d’Images International Festival

Two women try to stay true to themselves. Trapped in the middle of a videographic fresco in which their image is multiplied and shattered, they ape and compulsively replay their own image so that they don’t completely dissolve. However, their hopes are poorly aligned with their destiny as they are continuously ahead or behind themselves. In close succession, the presence of key women comes to their rescue (Marguerite Duras, Chantal Akerman, Martha Rosler, Amy Greenfield, Maya Deren, Lygia Clark), but their murmurings eventually recede into the distance. You may call this subterfuge.
