Assis debout encore — 2013

This short movie explores the world of fitness. The sublimed bodies replace the machines. They extend in unnatural, repetitive, almost robotic movements. Paul observes them as part of language with its own rules. A staged choreography within an absurd decor. A world filled with solitude and frustration linked to appearance and performance. The dance tells us the story of a society governed by anti-aging cremes and a cult of the mask. The use of close ups, tainted by a certain sexual ambiguity, reinforces the idea of struggle and isolation. Regarding sound, he plunges us into the mechanisms of appearance instrumentalisation.
