Based on amateur and family film archives from the 1920's to present times, Intruders is an audio-visual memory remix of anonymous stories and portraits, a dancing conversation with our own ghosts. Attracted by nostalgia and voyeurism, we are led into a time travel in which we are increasingly followed by familiar, suspicious and curious glances of unknown human figures, seeking our attention in the present time. Intruding our collective memory, the pictures use their own history to feed our inner emotions and internalised fictions.
Intruders is co-produced by the video art residency Bandits-Mages and the national French archive Centre CICLIC. Inspired by 4000 watched films and 26 hours of collected archive footage, Intruders is an unique contemporary historical document with more than 2000 live sampled and manipulated audio and video sequences. Dealing with collective memory as well as the intimacy and transience of being, the actuality of this audiovisual performance seems to be timeless in today's interconnected media society, which produces permanently archives.
