Gil (the first thing is your name)

GIL, archive footages and home movies, Black and white, 4:3, stereo, English subtitles, BE, 2016, 4’43’’

At the core of this film collage is the artist’s search for the face of her deceased twin brother, who died without leaving behind any photographic record. Using archive footages and her own home movies, paradoxically his absence is rendered perceptible through a profusion of images. An indirect portrait as the confirmation of an existence.
