a film in a goddess

2013
Mixed media installation, HD video 10 min

«I am Demeter, goddess of earth watching the earthlings. My body is a field of things that will grow, my eyes are underground and I’m wat- ching the earthlings living from what I am. I’m taking their veins for my roots, their blood is the possible rain breaking onto my more or less fertile body, their tears and their sweat too. I am kind, I’m gentle, very gentle, I am their mother. I love them, I like punishing them, I like rewarding them, I like touching them. I do what I want with my children.

Through the eyes of the goddess Demeter (a sofa where you are invited to lay on, so called «the Femme-Salon-Cinema») you can share a bit of her vision, two girls talking about the damages of alcohol among teenagers. The tale ends surely and badly, the goddess wants to punish them, their livers turn into two meringues.
