Ville Blanche

Ville Blanche, 2003
DVD Animation Produced by Le Fresnoy, Studio National Des Arts Contemporains

Ville Blanche, explores language and its ability to transform an environment.  The title comes from the direct translation from Beograd, where the city was named for appearing from the fog on the Danube. The scene takes place in front of the cityscape of Belgrade, a city that has been rebuilt 38 times in its history. A woman invites the viewer to speak, constructing a the gallery into a listening space. Waiting she starts to speak of the meaning of the name Belgrade (white city) and compares it to a puzzle she created. As she speaks, snow begins to fall on her and the city, building and piling until the screen goes to white.
