‘Royalist Dream’ is an alternative 24/7 News Channel which announces the return of the King of France and blurs the boundaries of news, TV shopping, propaganda and self-care.
The omnipresence of the blue — at the same time royal and chroma key —, examines our relation to Power and its symbols, in a continuous tension of the visible and invisible. It proposes a cyclical reading of history, where Louis XIV, like an ouroboros, devours its own tail.
