Dominique Dubosc

Palestine Remembered

2004, 37’34”

 

The season of films presented in collaboration with Animate Projects closes with Dominique Dubosc’s Palestine Remembered.  The film was included in Animate Projects exhibition in 2009 Drawn from Life (guest curated by writer and curator Stoffel Debuysere). The exhibition presented artists’ films that explore drawing, mapping and Palestine, including the work of artists Till Roeskens, Dominique Dubosc, and Sarah Wood (the Carroll / Fletcher onscreen season opened with Sarah’s film – For Cultural Purposes Only). An essay by Stoffel Debuysere accompanied the exhibition.

 

SYNOPSIS

In July 2002, the designer Maja Daniel was invited to Palestine by the Consulate of France in Jerusalem and the Palestinian Ministry of Culture, to revive a project drawing schools in Ramallah and Gaza. Dominique Dubosc decided to accompany him. Dominique’s project was not to account the ‘Maja mission’ (from the beginning doomed to failure because of the curfew imposed on major cities in the West Bank, and Israeli incursions ravaging Gaza), but to create a movie showing Dominique and Maja’s different perspectives. Throughout the spring of 2003, one day a week, Maja agreed to improvise under the eye of the camera, drawing images that evoke both Palestine and a wider world, filled with his usual bestiary. Dominique then spent several months with an editor to rework the images shot on the spot to give them a painterly quality, and added background music, to evoke a sense of memory.
