Julien Prévieux, Roulades, 1998

SD video, color, sound, 5’40”

An individual gets out of bed, falls down the stairs, rolls around all day in various public places before returning home in the evening by the same means. If this "ordinary" day is repeated indefinitely, the crossing of the city (streets, parking, shopping center ...) is also done in a continuous movement. The looping and mechanical soundtrack reinforce the simple and radical gesture, giving the whole a hypnotic dimension. Here, physical performance responds less to a questioning of the limits of the body than to the need to invent new behaviors and make them part of a daily reality.
