For Nicolas Moulin, “Fiction is a part of reality”, which he demonstrates once again in Warmdewar. Shot in a range of grays, this impressive film describes the wanderings of a man who is alone in a desolate landscape. The setting is in fact the abandoned building site of a North Korean palace; designed to rise 330 meters, the edifice was meant to become the country’s tallest. Using digital pop-ups and layouts, the artist replays a classic theme of pictorial romanticism, namely, man fascinated by ruins, even if they are ruins of monuments without a past.
