400Blows

Anouk De Clercq

35mm transferred to video, color, stereo, BE, 2009, 2'30''

Commissioned by arteconomy and De Walhoeve (a centre for children who can't live at home), the artwork includes a movie, a series of stills and a publication. Starting point was "Les 400 Coups", the movie François Truffaut made exactly 50 years ago. In the 2009-version, a boy is running in a landscape: it's not clear where he comes from or where he's going, but he seems to liberate himself.
