installation, video triptych, 20', three windows video HD colour, sound 5.1, © November 2009


Vanishing Point, the second part of an African trilogy realised in Burkina Faso, relates to the phenomenon of exclusion of certain women in the current context of urban and economic development in West African cities. Created as a triptych video, Vanishing Point queries forms of this exclusion by combining a view of urban development with the women's bodies at work.

Accompanying the installation are the transcripts of direct interviews conducted separately from the filming (eng/fr/moore).
