As part of the dv_vd screenings, a fruitful collaboration between Vidéographe and Dazibao.
créer à bras-le-corps
“My creative work is rooted in the body, in the attention given to physical sensations and in movement. I am interested in the body’s interior and exterior spaces… in physical and psychological relationships… in the embodiment of the poetic. I develop strategies to gain access to human vulnerability and strength, to delve into the interior of the being… in its depths and also its voids.
Notions of duality, of the double, of life and of death… also of ‘corporisation’ and dematerialization, gravitation and levitation… of processes of transformation are recurrent elements in my artistic practice.
I became acquainted with video in 1992… But given that I have a rather curious and inquisitive nature, over the years I have also created links with other artistic disciplines. Now, I have the pleasure of presenting to you a program bringing together for the first time works made between 2005 and 2018… Showing (among other manifestations) actions from the entirety of my practice and my artistic sensibility.
’there will be bodies that fall and that levitate… bodies that appear and then disappear… silent bodies and louder bodies… bodies that contemplate and those that search… but all images and sounds create à bras-le-corps!’
I thank the teams at Vidéographe and Dazibao for this invitation!”
