Google search : Syria

from 14 juin to 01 septembre 2018

By doing research on Google, just before the appearance of images, stealthily appears a checkerboard of colors, almost subliminally. Google search: Syria is the fade of screenshots of its checkers of colors and checkers of images that succeed them. By entering the name of each of the 13 major cities of Syria - those with more than 100,000 inhabitants - voluntarily capacity (?) As much the historical images as the news images, the images that those of war.
This work speaks of the collision between the past and the present and differences of interpretation around a single word, the name of a city. It evokes the waste and absurdity of these struggles but also raises questions about the power and power of Western culture and its tools of knowledge. The more images become immaterial and abstract, the more our story is impalpable.
