Much like Marcel Proust, the French video artist Christian Boltanski found rich material in his own past, producing several short films that made the art world stand up and pay attention. As he moved on from mining his own experience to reconstructing the memories of others, he began creating films and mixed media works that poignantly evoke individual experiences as well as the universal sense of longing that time leaves in its wake.
