In the short film Reading us Aloud Through Isolation, Ive tried to enlighten my growing connection to the humanoid objects populating my flat and the depth they give to my walls. While reading an extract of the book A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, I’m questioning the effect of words on my surrounding. In the film, you can briefly see me sitting at the kitchen table. But quickly the camera focuses on the divers objects, that I gathered along the years: George, an African mask, Bill, a trumpet playing statuette, a nameless drawing figure, a cast of my face with eyes dripping flowers, James, a hat mannequin, Leo, a wooden mermaid, Martine, a plastic human size mannequin’s legs, George, an Indonesian Mask and finally a nameless Normand stuffed bird.
