Canicule: [kanikyl] nom féminin : scorching heat, heat wave, midsummer heat; dog days plural.
This video work shows a traumatic situation: the heatwave that struck France in the summer 2003. The catastrophe can be sensed. People follow their daily business in an unreal way. They are slowed down, disappearing in an undeterminable way, sometimes staying at the threshold of the obscure fog made by drizzle appliances until the suspicion rises to an unpleasant reality that could turn out to be dreadful.
The relationship between documentation and construction is explored, and the video footage is juxtaposed against a purely digital image – screen of red rain.
