[ISEA2017] Artist Statement: Jérémy Pouilloux — Our Baby

Artist Statement 

Screening/’Media Art’ Piece

A VR mini-series in 10 episodes. As you emerge from your mother’s womb in a Paris hospital, you see the world and the world sees you for the first time. When you come face to face with your thirty-something parents (your mother is looking haggard after her labour, your father anxious and already wary), they see a physical defect affecting your face, one that will mark you forever. Will they be able to cope with this misfortune? Another life is just beginning for them, one of hell and love, one where they must master their distress and achieve a new equilibrium. Can they accept you as you are? Welcome to the world of a newborn infant.
