Hildegard von Bingen lived during the 12th Century. She was a Benedictine and a precursor, a poet and a doctor, who invented a language that she alone could write and speak, the lingua ignota. This language who has survived thanks to the description given by the Holy Roman Catholic Church in an eponymous book is the title of a video of Edith Dekyndt which features a hand mirror. Hung on a wall, it oscillates quietly through imperceptible breeze. Nothing suggests, no real image, only a feeling of absence and erasure at the sight of an everyday situation pathetic and fragile.
