CATHERINE BÉCHARD and SABIN HUDON

OLIVIA BOUDREAU

Dans l'intervalle

Olivia Boudreau’s work is remarkable for having combined the respective temporalities of performance and videography. She starts from the sequence-shot, the isochrony between the filmed time, the point of view, the time that the video is watched later.

JO-ANNE BALCAEN

In Pétard, Jo-Anne Balcaen decenters and displaces the fascination where, to feel their bodies crossed by a sum of indistinct feelings, one has the diffuse but intense impression of existing.
