Louis and Languages

Louis et les langues

Cloaked in an atmosphere of haunted melancholia, Aurélien Froment’s gently psychedelic work is an uncanny fantasia exploring the linguistic construction of identity, inspired by Louis Wolfson’s Le Schizo et Les Langues. Through curious interpolations of sound, text and image he traces idiosyncratic practices of translation as they develop in the mind of Louis, a young man treated for schizophrenia.
