ORANGE 2017 – video, Mouvaux, Lille, France
For centuries, Lille was the center of the textile industry, until the business was destroyed by cheap
imports from other countries. In some parts of the city you can still see the luxury mansions where the
former textile factory owners live. During my residency there, I was invited to have lunch with one of
those wealthy families. While we were having a piece of fruit for dessert, I became so fascinated by their
way of eating that I decided to record it on film.
