Where My House Lives
In this unique context of confinement, Jeanne Susplugas began collecting personal accounts of lockdown. These little stories were passed on to the writer Claire Castillon, who reinterpreted the situations in order to create powerful, imaginary narratives. This collection is not intended as a precise analysis or a sociological study, but rather it offers a palette of experiences, some painful or frustrating, others bitter or disturbing, revealing in a powerful and profound way our reactions in the face of an unknown and unpredictable event. Produced by Jeu de Paume (France) and Aarea (Brasil).
“Actively engaged but without being militant, Jeanne Susplugas' approach points to all the forms and strategies of confinement to question an individual's relation to himself and to the other.” (Philippe Piguet in Semaine 13.13) The media she explores allow her to consider various aesthetic terms that determine someone in an obsessive world, who is in turn confused or reassured, concerned or serene, solitary or with complicity.
