Chantal VeySur la route de Pier Paolo Pasolini : Contro-corrente


Sur la route de Pier Paolo Pasolini is a trilogy inspired by Pier Paolo Pasolini’s travelogue, La longue route de sable, the road along the Italian coast that he travelled in his Millecento in the summer of 1959. This little-known writing already contains all of Pasolini’s poetry, his authentic, sometimes incisive remarks on the state of his country and his love for it… Chantal Vey has taken up this itinerary again, alone at the wheel of her van, revisiting the places he described sixty years earlier.
This exploration of Italy has led Chantal Vey to travel thousands of kilometres, collecting photographs, videos, sounds, words… As with Pasolini, this quest has a poetic value, far more than a documentary account.

Sur la route de Pier Paolo Pasolini is divided into three chapters, following the chronology of Pasolini’s itineraries, and unfolds as close as possible to the adventure, echoing the words of the Italian poet. It is revealed from different angles, through photographs, photograms, texts, drawings and quotations… From page to page, the aim is to take the reader, the viewer, on a journey through the Italy of today, and to arouse or reawaken curiosity about this illustrious artist, Pier Paolo Pasolini.
Chantal Vey’s logbook runs through the book, enabling the reader to follow step by step the discoveries, sensations and encounters the artist made throughout her journey.
