8th 2009. Stéphane Mifsud stayed 11 minutes
and 35 seconds under water without breathing, setting
a new world record.
Two years later he is back in the swimming pool where he broke the record.
concept of 11 35 mirrors two shots that
we first believe to
be the same, while they are not. Stéphane
Mifsud tries to reiterates his past exploit,
without achieving it.
Eventually the duration
and the structure of the video reiterate
the performance, while the man doesn't achieve
it: that creates a silent underlying tension
in the video.
Paradoxically this work on
the gap contributes to blur the borders between
true and false, which opens a whole series
of questions without answer." Thomas
