Je Voulais Parler

Claudette Lemay

(Canada, 1997, video, 8:30)

A woman’s head, lying on it’s side, is as pale and motionless as a wax mask. The camera rocks it into a soporific state. Voices expressing the will to speak and communicate in a variety of ways rise up from within. When this murmuring changes into a satisfied hum, the face becomes fluid and mirrors itself like a stain in a Rorschach-test. Oppressive, surreal and exquisite.
