Zeriahen, a celebrated artist-filmmaker, is taking over the building of the Tribunal de Commerce in Quai de la Corse with his video piece entitled We are Catherine Deneuve. As the title indicates, the work is a homage to France's most beloved actress.
Following the process of Zeriahen's search for the idea of a collective world, the artist investigates the essence of Deneuve's character by examining her filmography and recreating a narrative storyline. This multifaceted portrait is all the more complex as it is projected simultaneously on three adjoining screens. The project ends with a declaration of love read by Catherine Deneuve herself.
Revolving around constant transformation, We are Catherine Deneuve is a fascinating take on the subject of transition, the main theme of the Nuit Blanche 2016.
