Contribution by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne
Comment: This is my contribution to The PARIS 2015 Memorial. Being myself a victim of a terror attack in 1998, I experienced the trauma of having survived after returning from a several months lasting coma. I lived like zombie for many years.
The video is the attempt to make the traumatic experiences perceivable via metaphoric images on an emotional level. The artist’s voice performing one of his musical compositions uses sound instead of words in order to symbolize the speechlessness and inability of the people surrounding him to react properly.
