Video, 5'43, 16/9, Tunis, 2012


LIVE is the actual sound recording of a taxi ride in Tunis, just a few weeks after the 14 January 2011 revolution…

The soundtrack has been juxtaposed onto still propaganda images. During the ride, the sound of the radio, the conversation in Arabic with the driver and the shouts from the street intertwine freely with each other against the backdrop of the marchers on the street, giving a sense of fiction cut off from reality, drawing an analogy with the official iconography of the then president Ben Ali with his deadpan expression.
