shot performance / series of monograms made with invisible ink

production: Courteline association, MACT (Maison des Associations culturelles de Tours) and Tours municipality

Traces de soi is a video and graphic performance created during workshops with three groups of children. In the framework of a research on signature, we suggested drawing their initials in the air with a part of their body to each of them.
Simultaneously we associated to each "mime child" a "scribe child" in charge of a transcription of the movement as fairly as possible on a sheet of paper with invisible ink. We want to favour listening to a movement rather than reading a sign, the meeting of two "characters" between paper and video image.
Altogether with an original music created by the collective, this short-movie is the trailer of an exhibition displayed at the MACT.
