La galerie de la Biennale
In "Reserved" the artist films a South-East Asian city deep in its preparations for an official visit. Lethargic waiting against a backdrop of official suspense, a city taken hostage and a gradual descent into the ludicrous: the long-awaited dignitary is never going to arrive. Fed up with hanging around, the kids in uniform finally storm the local ice-cream stand, and despite the safety barriers everywhere the police seem incapable of keeping order. Ideal citizens? Not at all: rather, a vibrant, reactive civil society capable of humorous resistance to the injunctions of authorities treated with gentle ridicule.
