cristal house, 2016
photo, video, textes

Cristal house happens to be the name of a racing horse. Project carried out in a betting shop in the center of Paris, where two worlds coexist. Outside, the city lives with its intense rhythm. Inside the hall, gamblers bet on horse races and repeat hand movements as they are waiting for the
race to be finish. As an attractive promise for a better life, the metropolis brings together human beings from all over the world. The notion of dreams and hope, which are intrinsic to each gambler, are found in the figures of those who migrate. A strange game of reflections places me in front of the hopes of those who are unfortunate. Reproduced as fragments of texts, their words provide an outline of the lives and dreams that converge towards this place of encounters and gambling.
