Video-vegetal installation.

Into the International Garden Festival of Chaumont-sur Loire, the landscape architect Jean-Philippe Poirée-Ville has created a vegetable sculpture, in a basement, as a large liana levitating in the dark. I worked on this piece for the video part. The plant is illuminated at night by strong spotlights and is visited on the day, in its night. Films that I made ​​for or adapted, are projected into this plant, in all directions (6 automated picos projectors arranged, invisible for the visitor). These are films without visible external frame, worked on a black background, so it creates in the space of the plant, an abstract moving space, quite fascinating, it seems.

With Maëlla-Mickaëlle Maréchal.

This installation was made ​​from 5 May to 2 November 2014.

Photos and video can make very bad account of the depth of space, and many successive planes of images. This work is probably unrepresentable. It is necessary, to perceive in all its dimensions, to be there, live it. Or maybe try to shoot in 3D.
