Magical Marsh —
The magical marsh is a fictitious place that I imagined superimposed on reality during the first lockdown: a place of dreams, of escape and reflection, of solitude too. From this dream and these thoughts a body of text was born, and this project (re)presents the attempt at visualising this journey. It is a matter of translating a set of colours, images, sounds and sensations that I have associated with the idea of this deserted palace, a place that is lived as both a refuge and a prison, the way I lived that first lockdown back in March: liberated and imprisoned.
Here is the fourth track (’Serpent-Volant’) music video in collaboration with Hugo Saccardy. ‘Serpent-Volant’ is where I tell of a dream, the sort you get when you nap in the sun, the sort you’d get in the Magical Marsh. The video opens to a journey from dusk till night, following snakes and butterflies.
