LE VISAGE QUE TU MÉRITES
Filmstill, Cyril Schäublin, "Le visage tue tu mérites", short film, 2018, 4 Min, 1,77:1, 2018, film still,
How do we live our lives, and how does life leaves traces on our face? In an elevator of a large metro station a mirror is installed. Passengers switch between the different platforms. For a fleeting moment they are alone with themselves and their reflection. In this short film Cyril Schäublin refers to a quote by Coco Chanel: "La nature vous donne le visage que vous avez à vingt ans. La vie façonne le visage que vous avez à trente ans. Corn à cinquante to do as the visage que tu mérites." - Nature gives you the face you have at twenty. Life shapes the face you have at thirty. But at fifty you have the face that you deserve.“
The film is owned by Le Manoir Art and can be seen in the context of museum exhibition projects, currently at Ludwig Museum Koblenz, in the context of the exhibition "Face it! Who do you want to be?", until 16th June 2019.
