Véronique Aubouy

Véronique Aubouy is a French filmmaker and an artist. Her works are strongly influenced by literature and music, and she blends documentaries, fictions, but also performances and video and photo installations. Since October 1993, Véronique Aubouy has been collecting live readings of Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, which she describes as a tremendous influence for her. The readings are filmed page after page, in the place and setting that they choose. To date, the resulting film Proust Lu is 126 hours long. She has performed her unique hour-long summary of Proust’s oeuvre in a number of places including Paris, New York and Los Angeles.
