We see the silhouette of the grandfather of Fabien Mérelle (b. 1981, Fontenay-sous-bois) as he filmed him 20 years ago. The artist will be standing on the raft, in his pyjamas, with a brush in his right hand and a pot of black ink in his left hand. He will try to capture the moving and disappearing face of this man which is projected on the sail. He will keep drawing until the face has become ink.
Marcel and me, the Raft of my Sixteen. - Fabien Mérelle
On the raft, a short film is shown in a loop.
