Call Me


19595 Rue de la Cathédrale

Emilien Simon’s malicious installation plays with current technologies to place the viewer in a paradoxical position. Call Me is a seemingly outdated video surveillance device that features several video monitors, one of which is placed on a base with a telephone number preceded by the inscription “call me”. As he approaches, the viewer sees his image appear on the screen, filmed and recorded live by a surveillance camera. Calling the indicated number enables him to scramble the signal of this camera and to orchestrate his own disappearance. But at the same time, whoever willing to disappear will leave an indelible mark.
