(…) You can go into a situation knowing that you’re interested and even knowing why you’re interested, but it’s the filmmaking that gets you closer to the parts of your knowledge that are inaccessible or not yet accessible.

Now I try to get a bit closer to knowing, to constructing something. I’m already one step further when I start than I used to be. I’d like to put those two ways of working together.

Made of words and exchanges, with no images, Drawing Room Confessions is open to diverse practices and voices. It is named after a game played at the end of the nineteenth century in England and France, which consisted of a fixed questionnaire answered by players to reveal their tastes, aspirations and personalities. For every issue of the journal, one artist is invited to play the serious and playful game of conversation. 
Each section follows a set of rules, only the players change, as interviewers from a wide range of fields contribute to a portrait of the artist at a certain time.
