Description

This video installation presents static shots filmed in the fishermen housing cooperative and its surroundings in Tyre. The shots have been left unedited in an attempt to record the peacefulness and banality of life there.

The 4 monitors play simultaneously the same 5 sequences but in a different order, hence proposing various facets of the housing cooperative, in a kind of "cubist" approach. There is always one sequence missing on the monitors, which underlines the fact that the viewer can never obtain a full representation of the cooperative.
