Tsetse Eradication Campaign, 2012
Edition 3 (+ 1 A.P.)
To create this work, Pratchaya Phinthong worked from a promotional film about the eradication of tse-tse flies by means of nuclear technology. Having the original time-code of the film, the artist chose to erase the images and to replace them by the script retranscribed in subtitles. The images having disappeared, only the words and the sounds offer the possibility of representing the epidemic and its consequences.This movie of campaign brings to mind images from the history of the fight against insomnia.
