Produced as part of the Fieldwork residency: Marfa


In 2018, while preparing my visit to the Fielwork residency in Marfa, a small Texas town of 1700 inhabitants, I discovered that Beyoncé had stayed there on vacation two years earlier, as documented by photographs found on her website.

Once there, I set out to find the places where the pictures were taken, wandering downtown and making contact with the locals.

I WAS HERE reports on this pilgrimage in the footsteps of the pop icon through four carefully chosen acapella interpretations of songs from the diva's repertoire. Each video uses the same protocol: filmed in a fixed shot and sung a cappella, the lyrics of the song scroll across the bottom of the screen in the form of karaoke, a device that allows the interpretation of the song by another.
