Resources. I archive, I ask myself questions, I store everything here. I write. Everything is super empiric. Stories. I join in. I ask them girls questions. Them girls answer. They help me. I record, I film, I take photos. They speak. They explain. They live.
Participate. I’ve made mistakes, I’ve forgotten, I’ve talked nonsense. I haven’t read everything, I don’t understand everything. But fortunately, I’m not alone.
Antichambre
Antichambre
January 2017, I write the first note which gonna help me run Antichambre. Through daily notes, links, or audio and video recordings, I slowly supply this space which helps me keep my head above water when I go under too long. Dirty words which scare us and which have something to do with women. Its shapes and its ways of retranscription go from image to text, from testimony to interview or from dictionary to secret diary. It gives a say to single people and then to a group and focusses as much on global phenomenons as on daily stories. The datas add up, build up and sometimes respond to each others. The entire content isn’t exhaustive and doesn’t claim to be so. Antichambre suggests a non-linear History of women : a personified, related and lived history.
The witness era
The witness era
is a wording I took from Françoise Thébaud and Geneviève Dermenjian which refers to the social importance of memory and the building of souvenir. The testimony puts forward a story which is close to the realities you live and enables you to reach phenomenons which are usually unreachable because they are viewed as too intimate. However, the aim is not to rewrite History but to tell it differently, from very special contexts - using the right sources to talk about the related topic. The building of this memory object is made of personal testimony fragments which, once put together, make a shared and common object.
