Performance "Album" de Denis Lessard

The goal of my performance is to demystify childhood memories. I attempt to break down the prettiness of the memories through the use irony and humor. To what extent do we re-create our past when memory, oral tradition, and a few photographs are our only remaining markers? The memories which remain are part truth, part fiction. My album is a collection of photos, memories, and autographs. But it could also be a record, stamps, or a book. My performances are long-term projects. Thus the performance itself is the tip of the iceberg, the visual summery of a work which comprises several spheres of human activity. Above all, it is a process through which we learn about ourselves and others.
