Cendres (Ashes)

What is left of the witches that were burned? What lies behind a word that is often used in a banal way? Witches have nourished the audiovisual imagination with stereotypes that rarely resemble the women who died under this accusation. Humble women, some dissidents, and often slaves of the new order that was built to stay. ‘Ashes’ explores the video-to-video technique in a piece that confronts stereotypes through the claim and the spell: say 'I'm a witch' three times and you'll be a free person. Do you dare?
