Synopsis: Which creature will we meet on our inner path?

Creative short film around or rather in the work "Tape Paris" by Numen / For Use at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris during the "Inside" exhibition.

"The curatorial concept delves into the murky territory of both physical and psychological interiority, thematising immersion, introspection and probing of the depths of self."
