Filmed as part of the art-walk Witness/N14 - Parcours 02 : Au-delà du périph. Conception and filming took place in a café awaiting démolition at a busy crossroads, Quatre Routes, and at the Port of Gennevilliers. Au Port des 4 Routes was projected over the four day-long art-walk, in a shipping container transformed into a 12-seat cinema, in the middle of the busy market place Quatre Routes.
Witness / N14 offered walks for dreamers in search of decadent spaces and unusual encounters. It was a large-scale neighbourhood project, a series of artistic hikes of over 10 km each, with installations proposed by the authors (Sarah Harper, Juliet Dieudonné and Erwan Quintin) and local inhabitants, inspired by research, collected testimonies and chance meetings made during our exploratory rambles. Subsequently installed into the very sites they were discovered, with the help of residents, these works and accompanying performances became the mediator of the spectator's vision of the road's heterotopia, the neighbours within, and the encounters experienced. The forms were multiple: photos in large or small formats, soundscapes, videos, texts, and performances punctuated both public and private spaces along the route and in homes, courtyards, gardens or shops, with traders or inhabitants becoming accomplices of the work.
