EST ABSENTE
(VERSION FRANCAISE)

by Yann BEAUVAIS
2004 / color / silent / 1S / 6' 43




How to convey poetry as a necessity without using image?
Recover the strength, the rhythms, the pathos of what was, what is at stake for a reader discovering this poetry.
Reading Rimbaud today, means to relate his experiences, his desires to ours, it means that we see a strong connection between his quest and what is today at stake about gay issues.
Selecting pieces of poems and letters I have tried to give back a kind of emergency that I sense within his poetry. Connecting different periods I wanted to give the desire to read him again and anew.
