Adel Abidin: Une Souris Verte / Green Mouse

Video/Sound installation

Green Mouse elaborates on the well-known French children’s song called ‘Une Souris Verte’. The song is about a child who finds a small mouse and takes it to an adult and this adult puts it in boiling water so the mouse changes to a snail. I made this short film by adapting the terroristic aspect of the song to our daily life and the new threats that we all face.
