For the community of Malkie (North East Syria), "Jaré" is an emotional memory. In the country, during the nights of great heat, Assyrian families used to sleep on the roofs of their houses in a large bed that they built all together. Their gestures are almost choreographed, reminiscent of a ritual. The video installation "Jaré" reactivates this memory belonging to the collective memory of this community, idealizing a disappeared land, which does not really belong to them. This installation is accompanied by an immersive sound piece mixing testimonies of Assyrians in the form of snippets superimposed on the sounds of the environment that they could hear from the bed.
