This project concerns the interpretation of images, how the manipulation one can perform on some public images can drastically change their meaning. I captured a Beatles concert video found on the internet.
I photograph the hysterical groupies, the tears, shouts, a gang of policemen trying to intercept a young lady running on the grass of Shea Stadium.
By focusing on those hysterical scenes, I tell another story, a horror movie. The moment of joy and exaltation felt at a concert, transforms into a moment of terror. The low quality pixellation of the videos dirties the images, blurs them, they become unsanitary. I manipulate as I wish the collective memory.
