SHANGHAI EXPO

Videos, Shanghai, 2010

 

Guest artists invited for the creation of two videos.

 

As part of the Shanghai Universal Exhibition 2010, I COULD NEVER BE A DANCER stages two videos exhibited at the French Pavilion.

 

The first one, which greets visitors upon their arrival in the pavilion, is at once an animated mirror, a mise en abyme, and a piece that plays with the concept of the museum space, a place of globalization but also a place where a very personalized relationship to the works and to others is at stake.

 

The second one, Movement and the City, captures a snapshot of Parisian life, the pulse and rhythm of a fantasized street, where the archetypes of a chic, arty and modern Paris crisscross.   Thus is created a typography-blink-of-an-eye of individuals whose shooting frame shows only legs, walking rhythms, crossings.
