CHRONIQUES Production 2018

Darwin Darwah is a computer-generated stereoscopic film.

The camera sinks into catacombs of Paris to reveal an “archaeology of the Web”. According to these new myths spread on the Internet, the history of Paris is linked to the pyramids of Egypt, which were built by aliens, who also gave birth to Man on “Earth”.

Arash Nassiri (FRA-IRN)

Arash Nassiri, born in Tehran in 1986, is a Franco-Iranian artist living and working in Paris. After a time spent at Paris School of Fine Arts and an exchange in Berlin to study the relationship between art and technology, he graduated from the Paris School of Decorative Arts and completed his studies at the Fresnoy in Tourcoing. In line with land art, Arash Nassiri uses settings as frames of work. Here, he examines Paris’ network of catacombs to map out a journey to the centre of the Earth.
