The short ‘En Mutation’ – ‘Changing’ – is part of a multi-media project ( photographic series + video ) which goes to the heart of urban transformation in the Bourgogne neighbourhood of Tourcoing. Freeing this neighbourhood from the spotlight of local urban policy by transforming the area qualitatively is the objective of the project. The neighbourhood it is now in the phase of demolition of the existing building stock, which consists mainly of terraced housingand tower blocks, and rehousing hundreds of families. ‘Changing’ seeks to investigate the intimate space of this mutation by meeting six residents and their families who are affected by immediate or imminent removal. This project records their feelings and proposes to create a paradigm trace of their presence before the memory is definitively erased. This work is the fruit of several meetings from which the recorded sound, remixed and transformed into a polyphonic sound track by Anna Sara D'Aversa, accompanies the video, filmed by a drone, of the demolition of one of the buildings.
