Dorippe Granulata

Video, loop (5mn), 2007. Coproduction : Bangkok University Gallery, French Alliance Bangkok.  
Dorippe Granulata is a contemplative film and penetrating portrait of an endangered crab that Laquet tracks using a flashlight, from race to frozen pose by the sea. With a head similar to a samurai warrior, Laquet recalls a scene from the Sokurov film “The Sun” where Emperor Hirohito became ecstatic while observing the crab, just before the Hiroshima bombing.
