A VOIR CORPS is a multimedia installation including 16 photographs and 6 videos. It’s made of three independent but intrinsic projects. One treats the image of the body as a product to be sold, the consumerist propaganda and the spectacle aspect given to the architectural and urban body of the city. One treats the routines of the downtown everyday life during the demonstrations and the relationship between the subject and the camera when the subject feels obliged to express an identity or a statement (engagement) in an attempt of justification of his presence in a specific space. And a third one treats the popular manipulation of an ideological religious event (like, in this case, Ashoura) where the event is used as an opportunity to show oneself, meet people, and seduce by working the image of one’s body. This third project follows a young man seducing the camera with his half nude body, and interviews a woman, native of Nabatiye, who describes how she used to perceive Ashoura: a more popular, human and individual point of view of such events.
