LE DÉJEUNER SUR L’HERBE (2006)
Homage to Edouard Manet
Video, 3 min. 39 sec.
The video shows on the left screen the finished montage with contemporary czech porn actors animating the classical painting by Edouard Manet which forms the backdrop of the scene. On the right screen the shooting of the video in a blue box is displayed, showing the set with the 2 cameramen-directors dressed and painted in blue. The phonetically repeated french dialogues of the actors add to the awkwardness of their performance and to the disconcerting atmosphere of the work.
Translated from the original French dialogues:
