ESAV Toulouse : Exhibition of the Palimpsest colloquium

18 May 2016. Published by Benoît Labourdette.

[Broadcasting of the film Tell me LED as an installation for the exhibition of the Palimpsest Colloquium (ESAV Toulouse).}.

From 18 May to 3 June 2016, at ESAV Toulouse, an exhibition accompanied the Palimpsest colloquium, where my film Tell me LED (2016, 1h06’) was shown. This film is made up of a large number of layers of images and sounds, so it was a perfect dialogue with the theme of the colloquium and exhibition.
