Le Défilé






Le Défilé, 2016, Color Vidéo HD 6"9, (see video extract)

The video The Defilé takes place on the beach of Grand Bassam where
street vendors sell their merchandise to tourists. But the sound of their voices,
covered by the one of the sea, does not reach the tourists’ ears who are
securely watching behind the blue fence, alongside the camera. Stuck between
a horizonless sea and the blue fence, these vendors who come from different
countries in Africa keep on parading. But how fragile is the fence ? A crack
splits the side of a beam. Could it fall at any time ?
