Participations’ Videos

The videos are the direct result of the participatory installation. Citizens are invited to be part of a new community that re-act monuments, and give them a second breath. This community spirit is formed through the creation of videos, published online on a website. In each intervention, the installation films the participatory citizens acting in front of the fictional piece of public space (the monument’s projection). Giving the opportunity to interpret monument’s history and meaning, give birth to common denominators that would link different cultures of the city.

The videos are the direct result of the participatory installation.

Citizens are invited to be part of a new community that re-act monuments, and give them a second breathe. This community spirit is formed through the creation of videos, published online on a website. In each intervention, the installation films the participatory citizens acting in front of the fictional piece of public space (the monument’s projection). Then, all of them are gathered in one video aiming to generate a sense of belonging.

Together, participants are generating new relationships with statues and sculptures of the city. Each behavior and movement are framed but free of interpretation. The play is directed by words and one participant.

The words indicate a way of acting, related to the (hi)story of the monument.

Participants are assigned with
1 Action (climbing, kissing, breaking, touching, praying…)
1 Mood (shy, hopeful, hopeless, angry, happy, sad…) related with the history of statue or the story of the sculpture.

Strange combination are arising from the installation as:

Cuddling / Serious

Climbing / Hopeful

Touching / Wild

Kissing / Peaceful

Celebrating / Angry
