Déploiements (2018, Single-channel video, colour, sound,16’14) deals with the State forces practice of control, both in the air and on the ground and draws a parallel between two types of simulations. On one side, the aerobatic demonstration team of the French Air Force is rehearsing the choreography through a series of hand gestures and a precise scripted language. On the other side, a scenario of a protest is simulated with a crowd control training software created by a private company for Police training purpose in urban environments, here in a fictional city. The video highlights the state’s strategies of occupation and the effect it has on the human body and its ability to move.
