François Rouan wrote Trotteuses in homage to Jean-Claude Deshons, a lost friend. It is a text for three characters, Una, Due and Tre. Autobiographical preoccupations are at the heart of these monologues, addressing the themes of death, love, and the political. The artist constructs a temporal framework composed of ‘tentures’ (tapestries) each lasting one minute. The tapestries were created using a superimposed series of photographic film images and films, and composed of images which are cut-out, reconstructed and interwoven.
