You shall be citizen*
* (original title: Tu seras citoyen)
HD, 16:9, 3' 05'', color video, no autoplay, no loop

The exhibition Hands up!* follows a logical sequence around a gold leafed wooden panel titled Index, stating ten instructions whose underlying principles are to be found dissected within the exhibition through the establishment of a color/material lexical field.
The video, whose installation is named after, contains images of a snowy road seen through the window of a car, alongside archive images presenting a borderless European map and against a backdrop of a XXth century selection of music. The video is not in autoplay mode, nor in a loop, thus asking the viewer for a reflexion and a subsequent decision.
