"Out of Places" present my most recent video works.
My video production is very limited, and linked to a particular context: often, it is in reaction to a new environment or a new situation that I start filming. Not inclined to self-portraiture, I stage a sort of character, a caricature of the modern employee to explore these places like a stranger.
In a saturated society where our search for legitimacy becomes complicated to the point where applying for a function consumes more energy than the work itself, where self-marketing becomes unavoidable, my character's efforts to stand out and connect to the environment are satirically undermined by the absurdity of his actions. Even the cartoonish banality of his appearance makes him an anomaly in the landscape.
