x comme x (03:06), 2017

x comme x is a text-based film which imagines cross-temporalities that extend from the contemporaneous, in which we hear incarnate words speak to the deep time that the geological fossil record offers. The text spoken on the film, translated into French – is a response to the visible strata of time recorded in a gorge in southern Scotland.
To reach their iteration in this work, the words were created across several platforms, including a film script and a performance text.
x comme x suggests an equivalence in time in which chronological duration and myth – measured both geologically and semantically – are given new sonic rhythms and visual patterns.
x comme x was translated into French by Fatima Djabri and Des Brennan. The text is performed by Fatima Djabri.
