A journey through memory mixing the past and the present where emotions find themselves as characters in transit with the moving image and self.
Chenille constructs transparent theatres whose characters are frozen in film.
‘the systematic psychological study of the sites of our intimate lives. In the theatre of the past that is constituted by memory, the stage setting maintains the characters in their dominant roles. At times we think we know ourselves in time, when all we know is a sequence of fixations in the spaces of the being’s stability- a being who does not want to melt away, and who, even in the past, when he sets out in search of things, wants to ‘suspend’ its flight. In its countless alveoli space contains compressed time. That is what space is for’.
