Denis Beaubois

In the event of amnesia the city will recall...

Beaubois parodies the supposed security aspirations of the control society by directing its technology against itself in a humorous fashion. The video in the event of Amnesia the city will recall… shows the artist placing himself in the same location in Sydney where he is filmed by surveillance camera and returns its gaze. Equipped with cardboard signs, he enters into a dialog with the surveillance apparatus.
