The Eraser is the story of someone with the ability to erase their past traumas due to anti black racism. But the process of erasure is not perfect and let place to visual chaos and emotional hope

From a very young age, Kriss has been exploring art through drawings, photography and video. But his journey started with his long feature film “Us And Them” in 2015, shot on his hitch hike trip from New-York to Rio de Janeiro. Being on the road as a black male, shifted his vision of the world and transformed his approach of art. After having directed his first documentary, Kriss focused on photography and decided to tell his story of racism and abuse he was victim of for a long time. Saying without saying, showing without showing. That is his mantra of his latest project THE ERASER.
