Yo, Carolina (2011)

It based on the book "The metamorphosis" of Franz Kafka, the video "I, Carolina" exposes one of the facets of the aggressiveness.

The words like a way of violence.

For Daniel Sibony (Moroccan, French Psychoanalyst 1946), there is a crucial episode in the book. It is when Gregorio Samsa’ s sister throws him apples causing the death of Samsa.

According to Sibony these apples, encysted in the shell of the protagonist, are words. They are the reproaches that acquire a mortal form.
