This video rethought the role of public sculptural representations, worldwide. While often “decorative”, these sculptures are often simply objects in public spaces funded by local governments, manifesting their power in shaping both art in public realm and popular aesthetics, often giving a false perception of sculpture medium, and how it should or could be interpreted. This ongoing project was a series of video-recorded performative guerrilla actions, using sculptures located in public spaces, including the U.S., Korea, and Iran. Before performing with a given sculpture, the artist asked for advice from professional art conservators or other specialists in the field of restoration.

Wojciech Gilewicz (b. 1974) is a Polish-born New York-based interdisciplinary visual artist. The artist draws on experience in painting and video to investigate boundaries of art and space. In his recording of reality, Gilewicz uses the video camera, which can fluidly transform into a means of registering social relations, which take place “outside” his actions performed with or around his paintings or sculptural objects. Gilewicz’s art provokes reflection on the mechanisms which govern perception and its cultural conditioning. Video works by the artist were presented internationally in the framework of numerous screenings in art institutions and video festivals including Media Art Biennale WRO, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid, CURRENTS: Santa Fe International New Media Festival, and Hors Pistes Japon. His awards include grants from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation and The Joan Mitchell Foundation, his residencies include Akiyoshidai International Art Village in Japan and Changdong Art Studio/National Museum of Contemporary in Seoul, Korea. The artist has been part for the last three years of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace Program in New York, where he’s been working on his “New Paintings” series started back in 2006 inspired by NYC subway. (www.gilewicz.net) In 2017 Wojciech Gilewicz established Beach64retreat in the Rockaways, Queens, New York for creative individuals as the artist’s response to the rising precarity in arts&culture around the world. The retreat is free of charge.

When I was invited to China at the end of 2008, in my contract with Zendai MoMA in Shanghai, I was bounded to realize 6 to 8 oil paintings there. While painting, I am often using my video camera as well, which is kind of registering in a cold eye the process of the ?emergence? of my urban-based paintings. I did so also when working for the museum on this series of paintings. However, in this very project the camera is slightly drifting away from the actual paintings and is showing fragments of reality as if they were autonomous paintings themselves. The reality appears in this video quite neurotic and nervous as well as a bit hectic. It is mysterious, very much fragmented and somehow jagged. The paintings coming off the reality leave a strange tear to it or maybe rather quite a philosophic dilemma.

Wojciech Gilewicz (1974) Polish American painter, photographer, author of installations and videos. In his works, which usually combine all these disciplines, Gilewicz explores the phenomenon of illusion and the blurring of distinctions between reality and its artistic representation. He also shows how relative and changeable our perception of the surrounding world is. Gilewicz?s practice invites a reflexion on the mechanisms governing our perception and on the cultural determinants of the way we see things. www.gilewicz.net

Wojciech Gilewicz: In Practice, 2009 (video) A series of oil paintings were installed outside the SculptureCenter building. The surfaces and forms of the canvases were designed to make them appear completely invisible while they were on site. A video documentating the process of placing the works in their environment encouraged visitors to explore the periphery of the building. Using a map I prepared, visitors were invited to search for the hidden paintings in the surrounding city space. I was primarily interested in challenging visitors` perception of space, reality and their surroundings. (by Wojciech Gilewicz) -------------- fragment of InPractice review by Lori Cole (ArtForum, 02.15.2009) "(...)While artists such as Peter Simensky, Carey Ascenzo, and Amy Patton struggle to reinvent site specificity, Wojciech Gilewicz defies its logic entirely in his deadpan installations-painted imitations of everyday surfaces, intended to go unnoticed in public space. In the video documentation of his project, Gilewicz nonchalantly installs the work in broad daylight, thereby performing the slight visual shifts between the trash on the surface of a garbage can and its painted replica, between a construction panel and its crafted double, and drawing attention to the way art can undermine even its own subversive rhetoric to make site both more and less noticeable." http://www.sculpture-center.org/pressSpecific.htm?id=61697

Metabolism
Fiction | hdv | couleur | 11:0 | France | Japon | 2015

Metabolism : “Le point de départ est la découverte d’un photomontage de Arata Isozaki intitulé “Re-ruined Hiroshima”. Cette image est une énigme : dans ce paysage dévasté, deux grandes formes architecturées se dessinent : ces structures constituées (on le suppose) par des débris récupérés dans les alentours, surplombent une ville mise à terre. Les métabolistes (un groupe d’urbanistes et d’architectes japonais autour d’une même vision : la ville du futur ) ont projeté de reconstruire ce pays, de (lui) façonner une nouvelle identité. Ce fut une sorte d’élan tendu vers l’avenir, vers un futur développement de l’espace urbain qui devait répondre aux flux des populations vers les centres urbains. Ils s’inscrivirent néanmoins dans une continuité idéoloqique ‘traditionnelle’ faisant référence à l’image iconique du temple d’Ise . Le métabolisme fût la dernière utopie moderniste du XXème siècle, cette découverte m’a passionné et a suscité le désir de faire ce film. Certains de leurs projets non réalisés sont introduits dans ce film par le truchement des techniques numériques, dans le Tokyo de 2015. Jalons historiques et présences fantomatiques inscrites dans les strates urbaines de la mégapole japonaise.


Qu’il soit filmique ou photographique, le travail de Pierre Jean Giloux débute par le stade préparatoire du dessin, phases de recherches où la pensée s’organise par strates, avant de passer à la réalisation. Ses installations photographiques composées de suites d’images peuvent être qualifiées de « storyboards agrandis ». Ces dernières -le plus souvent exposées en milieux urbains- se confrontent aux rapports d’échelles et questionnent le statut de l’image au sein même de la cité. Ses travaux vidéo sont les résultats d’associations et hybridations d’images. Il développe par le biais des techniques numériques un travail de collage, montage, de compositions visuelles et sonores qui incluent des séquences animées en 2 et 3 d. Il aime à faire cohabiter le virtuel et le réel dans le dessein d’établir un dialogue et de questionner notre rapport au réel et vice versa. En 2015, Pierre-Jean Giloux à la Villa Kujoyama (Kyoto, Japon) où il réalise le quatrième et dernier volet de “Invisible Cities” intitulé “Station to Station”. Ses installations vidéos et ses films ont été exposés dans de nombreuses institutions et festivals, notamment le Centre Pompidou, le MAC VAL, le CREDAC, Comix Home Base de Hong Kong, au Kyoto Art Center, au Pavillon de l’Arsenal à Paris.

Invisible Cities
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 0:0 | France | Japon | 2017

Comme dans le roman éponyme d’Italo Calvino, ces Invisible Cities ravivent un imaginaire utopique, qui entrelace les villes et leur mémoire, les villes et le désir, le regard, les signes. La part invisible révélée par l’artiste et qui instaure un lien de connivence entre les quatre volets de cette tétralogie évoque la vision d’une autre planification urbaine, intimement liée aux architectures prospectives des Métabolistes. À la fin des années 50, ce groupe tenta de redéfinir la ville durable, en combinant l’esthétique brutaliste et la modularité organique, en liant intimement le bâti au cycle biologique de la croissance, de la pourriture et de la régénération.


Le travail de Pierre Jean Giloux se situe à la convergence de plusieurs pratiques : l’espace / volume et les images. Ses vidéos sont les résultats d’associations et hybridations d’images. Il développe par le biais des techniques numériques un travail de collage, montage, de compositions visuelles et sonores qui incluent parfois des séquences animées en 2 et 3 d. Les interventions graphiques sur les images lui permettent ainsi de modifier la perception du réel et ainsi de créer des “ mondes reconstruits “. Il aime faire cohabiter le virtuel et le réel dans le dessein d’établir un dialogue et de les questionner.

The Mirroring Cure
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 28:0 | Royaume-Uni | 2006

Tout en retraçant la vie d'un grand chantier de construction, de la démolition à la réalisation de nouveaux bureaux, « The Mirroring Cure » met l'accent sur la secrétaire de la société, qui décide d'interroger les personnes qui travaillent autour d'elle. Elle veut comprendre leur relation au travail, leurs espoirs, leurs craintes et angoisses. Nous sommes spectateur de sa fascination pour l'un des architectes qui, découvre-t-elle, souffre d'une perte de l?équilibre, exacerbée par les grandes dimensions du site. Apparaissant tout d'abord comme un documentaire sur la complexité de l'identité formée par le fait d?être « au travail », ainsi que sur les effets de l'architecture sur le comportement, le film commence à intégrer des éléments de fiction en laissant le spectateur indécis sur le moment où commence la réalité. Dans quelle mesure les personnages sont-ils vraiment en train de jouer, cette question reste ambiguë.

Over The Bones
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 30:0 | Royaume-Uni | 2008

The film interweaves documentary and fiction to depict two characters, a truck driver and a singer. Filmed in their separate working environments their stories converge until they meet through an accident at a swimming pool. The driver witnesses the singer crashing into the end of the pool and passing out. He performs mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Waking the next day the driver discovers he has developed a desire to write music. For the next six months his singing career develops at a rapid pace. The singer temporarily looses her voice, on regaining it she discovers that it has dramatically altered in tone. Although the tale is told retrospectively no conclusion is reached. Is he continuing to sing, did she regain her career, have they permanently swapped voices? He continues on his journey. By combining voice over, interview footage and dramatic tableaux, questions arise as to whether the events are true and to what extent the cast are acting. The film investigates what happens to people once placed in front of a camera and subsequently how a filmmaker can attempt to capture individuals continually shifting performances in real life. How we adjust ?self? in relationship to ?other? and what role storytelling has in the everyday are developed into key questions. By combining voice over, interview footage and dramatic tableaux, questions arise as to whether the events unfolding are true and to what extent the cast are acting. Are the characters figments of each other?s imaginations? Or in fact each other?s alter egos? The film investigates what happens to people once placed in front of a camera and subsequently how a filmmaker can attempt to capture the subtlety of individuals continually shifting performances in real life. How and why we adjust ?self? in relationship to ?other? and what role storytelling has in the everyday are developed into key questions.

Charlotte Ginsborg graduated from MA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London in 2002 where she specialized in film and video. Her films interweave documentary and fictional elements to explore people?s psychological relationship to their architectural environments. She has exhibited her 16mm and digital films in galleries and festivals both nationally and internationally, including the Venice Biennale, the Serpentine Gallery and the ICA, London, the Pompidou Centre, Paris and the Walker Arts Centre, USA. She won the Oriel Mostyn Open 03 for her film ?Spade? and had a solo exhibition at the Jerwood Foundation, London. Her films are distributed by The Lux and she is currently artist in residence at The London Chest Hospital.

Fiction expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 45:0 | USA | Russie | 2011

Dans son film Hyperborea, Anton Ginsburg construit des points d?intersection entre la mémoire individuelle ou collective, et l?imagination. Parcourant les histoires nombreuses au sujet de la région mythique d?Hyperborea, il s?y est installé et a voyagé jusqu?aux territoires les plus lointains au Nord. Son expédition l?a conduit des des forêts du Nord Ouest Pacifique américain, aux palais abandonnés de Saint Petersburg, jusqu?aux Goulags de la Mer Blanche. Sur la trace d?anciens vestiges, forêts primaires, fossiles de mammouths et ruines, l?explorateur est accompagné par un mystérieux nuage de fumée rouge.

The film Pan (2014) by Anton Ginzburg, explores the genealogy and interactions of reproduction technologies from 16mm film to video formats. It examines variations of the mechanical gaze and its disembodiment in relation to the architectural representation and historical context. The hybrid aura offers an interplay and reconsideration of temporal and spatial relationships.

Turo
Fiction expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 35:0 | USA | 2016

“Turo” is a film exploring post-Soviet geography and Constructivist architecture. It is made up four chapters and an introduction-index. Each chapter is exploring a different Constructivist building as a stage for past utopias. The buildings are landmarks of Soviet modernism: Melnikov House (architect Konstantin Melnikov), Narkomfin Building (architect Moisei Ginzburg), ZIL (Automobile factory designed by Vesnin brothers) and also recording of a “ghost mode” of a video game exploring ruins of Pripyat’ (Soviet town affected by Chernobyl catastrophe) featuring unrealized Tatlin’s Tower. Since a lot of Constructivist projects were never realized and existed as potential designs, they are placed into the virtual environments of the video game, positioning utopia within dystopia. It’s an atemporal collective territory, where past dreams coincide with current consumer culture. Modernity could be interpreted as an updated Babel Tower project where the universal tongue would have been imposed over the rest of the world. It still resonates deeply with contemporary culture, but today it exists as an archive of ruins, the record of fragmentation. Exploring various methods of representation the video’s structure combines cinematic approach with layering and digital abstraction. Each part of the film is a metaphorical tower that gets deconstructed throughout the duration of the chapter. Some parts are direct cinematic narratives, like an enormous blaze, while others show use projected images, deconstruction of an image and shaping its potential meanings on the basis of technological reproduction.

Birobidzhan Atlas
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur | 21:22 | USA | 2017

"Birobidzhan Atlas" is a film exploring Jewish Autonomous Region, an area that is located in the Far East of the Russian Federation. Founded by the Soviet government in 1934, the Jewish Autonomous Region became an official self-determined Jewish entity long before the establishment of the State of Israel. The landscape had a harsh geography and climate: it was mountainous, covered with virgin forests of oak, pine and cedar, and also swamplands festering with mosquitoes, and any new settlers would have to build their lives from scratch in this underpopulated region on the border of contested Manchuria. Birobidzhan is a town and the administrative center of the Jewish Autonomous Region, Russia, located on the Trans-Siberian Railway, close to the border with China. It is named after the two rivers: the Bira and the Bidzhan, which are tributaries of the Amur. The city was planned by the second director of Bauhaus, Swiss architect Hannes Meyer, and established in 1931. Birobidzhan Atlas employs Aby Warburg’s method of “ montage-collision ”, to build a representation of the area through combination of historical archives and documentation of today’s landscape, the relationship between the utopian and the represented landscape.

Remote
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur | 23:41 | Belgique | 2016

Remote is a suggestive story. Portrait of a tender companionship in a secluded Irish countryside. Residing in the simplicity of the moment, the waiting and the repetition of days. This is a place where there is no space for imagining a future other than the perpetual repetition of the present. This is a place for survival, to be strong, alone with the wind, eyes burnt by the light. A place of unspoken tenderness, a landscape of silence and solitude in which there will always be someone.

Eva Giolo (b.1991 Brussels) is an audio visual artist. Her practice is predominantly made of filmic portraits that weave between fiction and documentary. They focus on individuals, almost always facing a certain kind of loneliness. She mainly focus on those individuals in their daily life, scripting and observing their actions and daily gestures through the camera. They often touch upon universal human themes and explore the relationship between loss, time and memory. But also the in-between language of the camera and the subject. Presenting memories, images and portraitures as something that can be manipulated and seen with multi-perspectives. Questioning the power of images is a recurrent theme and memories often stand as a central narrative. Giolo obtained a BA and MA in Fine Arts at the Media Arts department of the Royal Academy of Arts (KASK), Ghent. She completed her music education at the Institute of Contemporary Music in London. Recent screenings and exhibitions include: Imagine Science Film Festival, New York; TAZ#17, Ostend; Côté court, Paris; International Film Festival Rotterdam; Blaa Galleri, Copenhagen; BOZAR, Brussels; Courtisane Film Festival, Ghent; Ishibiki Gallery, Kanazawa; In Out Film Festival, Gdansk among others.

A Greek TV-commercial from the 80s of a product-action racquet game- that failed to become a success in the local market, is being manipulated anew in terms of image and sound. Apart from a funny rhythmical reworking of a rather trite found footage, this work aims at presenting a comical and simplistic view of how American products and trends have been implanted on our collective subconscious through advertising.

Marina Gioti is a filmmaker based in Athens, Greece. Her film and video work has been presented at various festivals and special screenings around Europe and the United States. Her most recent video "B-alles" was an official selection at: New York and Chicago Underground Film Festivals, Cinematexas 11, Hi/Lo Film Festival, Hull International Short Film Festival, among others. She also works as an independent film and video curator, programming and organizing experimental film and video screenings at various venues around Athens, mainly under the name "novaXpress". She has also programmed for Synch Festival (artistic director Synch Cinema 2005) and Cinematexas. She is the co-curator of the art exhibition "Anathena", which recently opened at the Deste Foundation (Athens, Greece).

Greece, the early 70?s. A family visits the museum of the 1821 Greek Revolution and War against the Turks. As they wander inside the museum, one of the paintings comes to life ... ?Sabotaged? version of a rare -found- propaganda film,produced during the Greek military junta in the 70s, supporting a largely debated fact -for many a national myth- related to the birth of the modern Greek nation and the construction of its ethnic identity.

Born in Athens, Greece, Marina Gioti has studied Chemical Engineering, Environmental Management (MSc), Filmmaking and Media and Communication (MA) in Greece and the UK. Since 1999 she lives and works in Athens as a filmmaker/ video artist working mainly with found footage and animation.

A collection of visual evidence from an Athens of the near future devoid of humans. Its inhabitants have mysteriously disappeared, leaving behind a tableau mourant of concrete, metal and plastic coexisting with with glorious marble and the local flora and fauna. Part science fiction, part archaeological mystery, the work offers a picturesque expedition of the new Greek ruins, through an apposition of findings that serve as hints for the fate of the film’s elusive protagonists, the -conspicuous by absence- Athenians.

Marina Gioti is a filmmaker/ visual artist based in Athens, Greece. She studied Chemical Engineering, Environmental Management (MSc), Filmmaking, and Media and Communication (MA) in Greece, UK and Belgium. Her films and installations have been screened and exhibited worldwide at both international film festivals (Toronto IFF, Transmediale, Jeonju, Viennale,Les Rencontres Internationales, etc.) and museums/ visual art platforms [Thessaloniki Biennial, Wrocklaw Media Art Biennial (Poland), the Whitechapel Gallery (London), Bozar (Βrussels)].

Fabric is a montage based on remaining workprints from a commercial film about viscose that no longer exists. The original attempt of the film to visualize perfect images of a young tailor and models dressed in sensual fabric while acting within a decorative modernist setting is mirrored in its shortcoming. The leftovers only show the preliminaries, faulty repetitions and aborted takes, thus all footage which was thrownout. Clapper boards indicating each take by numbers allowed to reconstruct a part of the film’s original storyboard. The new montage shows all of the remaining snippets from the related scenes including the clapper boards, the repeated takes and the glitches in the film material. However, all parts which probably have been used to edit the original film are missing, the gaps are marked with beeps on the otherwise silent soundtrack. While following a fragile new narrative, Fabric also generates a counterpart of an artefact that was lost.

A broken bottleneck lies on the ground. An analogue telephone with a blank dial plate. The hero of the film, Jean-Louis Trintignant, in younger years – in older years. A man huddled on an elevator floor. Skewered butterflies. He is all alone in the world. The external is sealed off. The internal barricaded. He shifts between times. His focus is always trained on the other. Is he wanted, condemned, persecuted? The man whom we observe from the rear, is only able to see his back in the mirror. His face cannot be recognised. All the actions and movements, all the seeking and striving, all the alterations and associations revolve around the view and excerpt from “La reproduction interdite”, painted by Belgian surrealist René Magritte in 1937. The mirror axis of the film, and yet, and simply for that reason, one becomes the other. The other becomes many. “personne – that is somebody and nobody and anyone. That is us in the course of time. Persistently, in vain. The self is the need for permanent self-assertion”.

Christoph Girardet & Matthias Müller are directors, known for Cut (2013), Contre-jour (2009) and Personne (2016).

The Straight Edge est une expérience appliquée à un concert de musique punk-hardcore. La foule et son intensité en sont le matériau. Les expressions communes de joie, de violence ou d`ennui sont les éléments d`une même fiction culturelle à travailler. Des formes y sont tentées, déplacées et répétées. J`envisage la communauté comme un jeu complexe où s`inventent les individus. C`est dans le partage des règles, des postures et des vitesses que chacun se construit et constuit un monde. C`est ce mouvement de production qui est l`objet de mon travail. Je veux croire qu`il est toujours flexible et modifiable, qu`il peut être altéré et recréé. Je veux croire en la fiction et la possibilité de sa réinvention.

The Night in All Things
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 9:46 | USA | 2017

Somewhere, a young man is asleep, his room illuminated green by the flicker of his computer screensaver. Even the night sky resembles its digital replication. Anthropological observations on sleep in the age of technology, and the ways in which it substitutes natural environments.

Alexander Girav was born in Chicago in 1995 and now works as a cinematographer in Los Angeles. While a student at CalArts, he had his work screen at The Chicago International Film Festival and Valvidia International Film Festival. Upon receiving his BFA in Film/Video, Alex`s work has been selected to screen by Ann Arbor Film Festival and International Film Festival Rotterdam - among others.

Gladwell est le calme pendant l'orage. Au ralenti, nous pouvons entrevoir son talent sur une planche - il fut après tout un champion d'Australie de Skateboard - ainsi que son talent a montré une beauté authentique et une profonde vulnérabilité. Gladwell était et continue à être fasciné par le ralentissement du temps et l'attention sur la beauté qui existe dans ces moments de flottements. Dans la culture skateboard, des skateur vont passer des heures devant la TV (ou devant un écran d'ordinateur) à passer un film au ralenti pour apprendre et exécuter plus tard plusieurs figure de skateboard. Les spectateurs crédules sont introduits dans la pratique d'une subculture donnée et ont l'opportunité d'une jeter un ?il neuf sur unautre . Dans l'essai du catalogue d'exposition Silent, Ambient, and Harder Remixes, Simon Rees déclare à juste titre que l'artiste porte des habits sombres à la Turner en différentes teintes de gris, et qui inclue une grosse chaîne en argent qui se balance d'avant en arrière à chacun de ses mouvements. Mais ce documentaire ce se ne limite pas à cela, il vient en complément de l'arrière plan orageux et sombre. Les séquences d'orages sont dédiées à l'ami et entraîneur du skateboeardeur décédé à la fin des années 90, ce qui rehausse l'interprétation de vérité et de vulnérabilité. Il y une grande tristesse sous-jacente dans cette fabuleuse vidéo néanmoins calme et amène à la méditation. Gladwell est un artiste intelligent et très lu, qui s'intéresse aux théories questionnant les notions d'espace public et privé la la notion de l'" autre" dans ce cas en particulier, le "sous". "Storm Sequence", tourné en 2000 est l'une d'une série de quatre, composée de "Storm Sequence", de "Kick flipping Flaneur", de "Tangara" et "Double Line Work". Le travail fut commissionné par Pete Fay et fut au centre de l'attention de nombreuses expositions à Sydney, Camberra, Perth, Bierut, New York et Londres.

Making of
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 30:0 | Allemagne | Autriche | 2015

The film "Making of" takes work as a topic into focus, showing the various working areas of a contemporary art museum with all those activities which usually remain invisible for visitors. Shot from the perspective of a small filmcrew different kind of workflows are documented as well as the preparation for an upcoming exhibition, while the crew itself is constantly observed in their efforts to create this film. Director, cameraman and sound operator move through all areas of the The State Gallery in Linz in an almost performative way. The ongoing visible presence of the camera raises questions about the relationship between the documented actions, their authenticity and manipulation. The depicted reality becomes visible as part of a media construction.

Alexander Glandien was born in 1982 in Schwerin (Germany) and he works as an artist in Vienna. Since 2009 he is artistic and scientific assistant at the Art University Linz. After his studies at the University of Wismar he attended studio grants in Indonesia, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain.

9m2 pour deux
Fiction | betaSP | couleur | 94:0 | France | 2005

Ce film est issu d?une expérience cinématographique menée en milieu carcéral. « 9 m2 pour deux » a été mis en scène dans un décor de cellule reconstituée en studio à l?intérieur de la prison. Dix hommes détenus y deviennent tour à tour interprètes et filmeurs de leur propre vie. Chacun d?entre eux s?exprime ainsi à travers des situations quotidiennes en une série de moments forts : amitié, indifférence, confrontation, solitude.


Joseph Cesarini. Réalisateur / filmeur - Photographe Diplômé de l?école des Beaux-Arts de Marseille Photographe de formation, il découvre l?univers carcéral en 1987 et réalise son premier film sur le tatouage en prison : « Tatoo cage » 26 mn En 1989, il rencontre le cinéaste Renaud Victor et collabore à la réalisation du film « De jour comme de nuit », un long métrage de 2x52mn sur la vie quotidienne des détenus. De 1991 à 1994, il co-réalise avec Caroline Caccavale « Coursives », une série d?émissions-débats tournée en prison. Parallèlement à son travail de réalisateur il fonde avec le photographe Marcel Fortini Le Centre Méditerranéen de la Photographie à Bastia (Corse) En 1999 et 2000, il réalise deux films dans le cadre des Ateliers Video mis en place par Lieux Fictifs à la prison des Baumettes à Marseille: « Mon Ange » et « la Vraie Vie ». ces deux courts métrages expérimentent de nouvelles formes de représentation de la personne incarcérée. Le regard du détenu, sur lui, sur nous, sur la prison, et l?émotion qui s?en dégage sont intimement liés à l?acte de mémoire. A partir de 1997 il commence un travail en Corse sur l?insularité. En 2000, il réalise « Les cousins de Barbaggio » 73 mn. En 2001 « I Paceri » à la recherche des faiseurs de paix » En 2002, il retourne à la prison des Baumettes avec le projet « 9m2 pour deux » une expérience cinématographique qu?il co-écrit et réalise avec Jimmy Glasberg et la collaboration de Mourad, Roger, william, Christopher, Phillippe, Nordine, Bruno, Mohamed, Kamel, Olivier. Jimmy Glasberg Réalisateur - Directeur de la Photo AFC. Il a commencé sa carrière d?homme d?images dans les années soixante comme journaliste reporter-cameraman. Il participe ensuite activement au mouvement du ?cinéma direct? et collabore à de nombreux films utilisant cette technique de filmage : ?Continental Circus? ( Prix Jean Vigo) puis ?Shoah? (César du film documentaire) ? Français si vous saviez? etc... Parallèlement à sa carrière de directeur de la photographique dans l?industrie cinématographique ( Longs-métrages, Films publicitaires, Télé?film ) il réalise de nombreux documentaires. L?apparition des nouvelles technologies et plus particulièrement des caméras DV l?a conduit à réfléchir sur ces nouveaux outils et leur utilisation. C?est dans ce contexte qu?il entame en 2002 une expérience cinématographique en milieu carcéral à la prison des Baumettes à Marseille. Le film « 9M2 pour Deux » en est le résultat.

Doc. expérimental | dv | couleur | 5:30 | Pays-Bas | Tchad | 2005

"Air Wave", une courte vidéo et essai sonique, présente de manière simple et élégante les sujets suivants : la lenteur de la vie quotidienne dans certaines régions parmi les plus reculées du monde, mais aussi la soif d´informations de l´autre partie du monde - la partie connectée, le monde global. La pertinence du propos est durement renforcée par le fait que le sujet sur les informations soudanaises parle en partie de l´Irak (les distortions sonores le rendent accessible aux non-arabophones). Les prises de vue ont été réalisées au Tchad dans la région de Waddai et N´Djamena. L´artiste y était en tant qu´assistant pour un documentaire sur le problème des réfugiés du Darfour. "Air Waves", une des nombreuses vidéos d´artistes qui s´intéresse à des sujets concrets de la culture, est distribué par "Art for People"
