Eman Bakia, Found Objects

The model of a private jet made in France, the nose of a Fellinian clown, a photo of Chaplin’s smile during his summers in Bidart, a couple of letters written from the hell of Sachsenhausen, the rubbish bin of the tomb engraver in Baiona, a tapestry of the Kings of Benin, 37 figures of elephants from a Rumanian princess’ collection, a feather from a pheasant’s tail sent from Colorado, a biography under the title of “And now, leave me alone”, two wooden sculptures carved by the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, 34 eyelids of sleeping Parisians…

The list appears to have been written by George Perec himself, almost the ingredients of a spell to prepare a potion whose effect we have no idea of. In reality, we are looking at the exhibition of objects that the film-maker, Oskar Alegria, found during the making of his film, La casa Emak Bakia, pieces that come from films and into the display cabinet to toast an extra space of the documentary itself.
