World Cup Redux

by Vivien Park

"Refait" is a contemporary remake of the last 15 minutes of the 1982 World Cup match between Germany and France in Seville, Spain. The scenes were re-enacted shot-by-shot in an urban setting and were shown alongside the original footage. By putting the legendary 15 minutes of overtime into a new space, French artist collective Pied Le Biche has shifted football history into a temporary urban experiment.
