Journal Intime (Intimate Diary)

Jean-Gabriel Périot

2000, 02:00 minutes, colour, N/A


A very private moment in which the body becomes an artificial, fabricated entity. A young man is getting changed in front of a mirror. He cleans the scars on his stomach, takes out his contact lenses, removes his dentures and brushes his teeth before leaving. This brings up the question of appearances - here we see what we are not in the habit of seeing. There is also the question of intimacy... A question, however, which remains unanswered.

Quelques instants très privés durant lesquels le corps devient coutures et prothèses. Un jeune homme est devant son miroir, il se déshabille, nettoie des cicatrices sur son ventre, enlève ses lentilles, enlève son dentier et se brosse les dent avant de partir. Juste un jeu sur les apparences, ce qui est caché et qui ne se donne pas à voir habituellement. Et la question de l'intime… Toujours sans réponse.
