HD video (looped)
The work “High Plateau” was filmed during my residence at the Cite´ Internationale des Arts in Paris. I took a lot of video footage of street performers and practitioners of parcour that reclaim the urban environment for their own pleasure.
Set against skyline of Paris a floral street pole stands like an exclamation mark against the clouded horizon. A small group of pigeons gets a surprising visit by a soccer acrobat that has his own personal claim to this vertical playground.
