Riyo, 1999
Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, (Strasbourg, 1965)
Production : Anna Sanders Films, Courtesy : Esther Schipper Gallery, Berlin et l'artiste
10 mn, japanese, french or english subtitles

"I think I'm obsessed with a world through which we walk in the spirit". It's a blue night and the camera floats from left to right of the Kyoto’s Kamo River. Restaurants run along the river enlivened by lanterns lights. A phone rings off camera, and a teenager answers. There is a girl on the line, but she’s not sure who it is. "It's Riyo. 'Rio?' 'Riyo.' Yo Riyo! Now, I remember. A conversation between two teenagers who met during the holidays. In Gonzalez-Foerster’s film, the boys’ hometown, Kyoto, becomes a kind of decor in which the two protagonists invoke distant places: Shirakawa, Yokahama and even "Rio". This confusion is the hinge that connects the physical and emotional landscapes of the film. Riyo is a references game between memory and a dream time, where the artist develops the theme of motionless travel.
