Video-installation displayed in two LCD video screens integrated in a fake architecture structure imitating an already existing one in the place.

Friction deals with the concept of the unattainable of a communication process. The attraction and repulsion of a magnetic field express by a cut in the architecture where two characters struggles to reach the other side.

The viewer finds himself in an uncomfortable space where taking part of the conversation flux demands attention.

High noon in eternity      |      The air is heavier than a horse
Wekalet nehna      |      From this world to the next one
You are here for a reason      |      The night between Ali and I
A glance and I thought it was a greeting      |      La chose
commence ici      |      Flying fence      |      Preferring the fleeting
happiness on earth      |      Half broken hearted half in love
The connivance of watching Birds      |      You know who I am
Oum in three movements      |      Besides the sea      |      Friction
58 Degrees      |      Anticipation of a disappearance
Inheritance      |      The south is back
