The Indians

Video 31min, stereo 16/9 – HD – 2011
Coproduction Rennes Biennale / Raphaël Grisey

In the context of the students´ strike and occupation of the French university Rennes 2 and of the general strike in Martinique in Winter 2009 at the beginning of the global economic crisis, a jam pot, a thermal station, a Caribbean drums band and Edouard Glissant are converging and conversing. Reproduction of struggles and the activation of the inanimate seems here to imply displacements and a wandering into different sites of knowledge and the consideration of different agencies like energies, matters and rythms.
