Artwork description

Video – PAL 16/9 – Color – 8 min loop Tahrir consists in a stroboscopic assembly of images from Tahrir Square, shot during the second Egyptian revolution. The video successively pictures, at a speed of 25 images per second, an image of policemen and one of rioters. Thanks to retinal persistence, the eye of the beholder gathers them in a third, ghost-like image – that of a hypnotic and brutal battle eld. Tahrir, 2012 (Excerpt)
