Chantal VeySur la route de Pier Paolo Pasolini
On the Road by Pier Paolo Pasolini is a trilogy inspired by Pier Paolo Pasolini’s travelogue, The Long Sand Road, the road along the Italian coastline that he drove along in his Millecento in the summer of 1959. This little-known book already contains all of Pasolini’s poetry, his authentic and sometimes incisive remarks on the state of his country and his love for it… Chantal Vey has taken up this route again, alone at the wheel of her van, revisiting the places he described sixty years earlier. This exploration of the Italian territory has led Chantal Vey to travel thousands of kilometres, collecting photographs, videos, sounds, words… As for Pasolini, this quest has a poetic value, much more than a documentary testimony. Sur la route de Pier Paolo Pasolini is composed in three chapters according to the chronology of the itineraries, and unfolds as close as possible to the adventure, echoing the words of the Italian poet. This adventure is revealed from different angles, through photographs, photograms, texts, drawings and quotations… From page to page, the desire is to take the reader, the viewer, on a journey through today’s Italy, and to arouse or reawaken his or her curiosity about this illustrious artist, Pier Paolo Pasolini. The book is crossed by the logbook kept by Chantal Vey, allowing the reader to follow step by step the discoveries, sensations and encounters that the artist made throughout his journey.
