MERE JEANNE DES ANGES

by Jean-Baptiste LENGLET
2008 / Mini DV / b&w / sound / 1S / 9' 00




Mère Jeanne des Anges is a video palindrome on Loudun’s mass possessions. It is a work of found-footage: I took a plan of Jerry Kawalerowicz’s film: Mother Jeanne of the Angels (1961), and I gradually eroded it, until reaching a climax - a formal interpretation of the experiment of the possession: the black and white image of original film clashes convulsively, drools and contorts, under the gaze of the spectator.
