PREMIER QUARTIER: MÉMÉ OUDGOUL
In this video presented as part of the collective exhibition “Premier Quartier” at MLIS with the collective Les enfants de Diane, the character of Mo appears for the first time, inspired by Grandma Oudgoul in the novel Terminus Radieux by Antoine Volodine. A symbol of pugnacity and independence, whom the radiation from failing nuclear power plants has made immortal in a post-apocalyptic USSR, Mémé Oudgoul no longer reports to anyone. She has gone beyond the theoretical limits of life to become a mythical character, inhabiting the earth no longer being subject to its physical, moral or administrative laws. Freed from these constraints, accompanied by the attributes of the goddess she has decided to become, she patiently redefines the rules of her existence.
