The Suitecase

Germany, 1992 (MIFF 1995, Buried Treasures – Oberhausen Retrospective)

Director: Dieter Reiffarth

Portrait of the artist Nicole Guiraud. By means of objects and installations she tries to establish a kind of visual or sculptured diary of her memories: her childhood, the sea, the city of Alger, the war in Algeria, the assassination, the expulsion, the exile and the return.
