Cenotaph XX (2016)

Full HD video for a continuous streaming, 55 min 08

// This video monument deals with the erasure of women from the collective history, using a new selection from the 1038 names that compose the installation of The Dinner Party (1974-79) by the artist Judy Chicago. The selected 827 stream on the screen while a synthesized voice enunciate transitive verbs, employed to characterize the major fact that each fulfilled. This cenotaph seeks to legitimize the merit of these historical women, while evoking the rejection of these same women of the universal memory by a rapid scrolling between them.
