FANTASIA 907 B* A digital collage series recombining fragments of image and text
The world of « Fantasia 907 B » exists in an imaginary, satirical spatio-temporal context which serves as a metaphor for Tunisia’s social, political and cultural landscape over the past ten years, with direct references to American and Japanese geek culture.
Over the years, an infinite number of photos and videos have captured fleeting moments that remain engraved in our memories. The incessant flood of information everyday has scattered these memories. Some, many of whom are older than « Nuts », have not experienced these surreal moments, anecdotes and absurdities. And yet existing archives and sources of information are directed towards a very specific public.
The two authors of this project, Rym Amami & Ghazi Frini, have set out to freeze time using the technique of collage. Each text, which refers to one year of the past decade, will be accompanied by a digital and manual assembly of photos taken from video captures, newspapers, photographs, caricatures, memes, etc.
« Fantasia 907 B », Frankenstein of a memory archived at the morgue, has come to life thanks to the surgical skills of « Nuts », and set out in search of an audience that will praise him with laughter or screams.
