Stories about J. Chekroun (Stories about J. Chekroun), 2015-2016 Video and Voice recording, 9min 50sec.

Realised in 2016, the video Histoires à propos de J. Chekroun is an autobiographical memory of his life.
Two recordings were made but the series of questions were not the same, a gap was created between the sound and the image.
In my view Julian was one of the best narrators I have had the pleasure to know, his stories were both reflective and funny and something to be treasured. In contrast however, I couldn’t avoid seeing the sadness and fragility in the times we spent together and the time delay is the confusion ‘between what is said and not meant, and what is meant but not said’ Khalil Gibran
