Calligraphy

A film by Benoît Labourdette (1’55s, 2020).

The couple seems to be an evidence in the construction of love and family. Let’s lift the veil on its true history.

Calligraphic explorations, unique words inspiring their form of drawing.

An inaccessible child’s dream, in a lost house in the woods.

Words are discovered, stripped, met in the adventure of their freehand writing.

The six letters that make up the word “couple” have a hard time fitting together, and even end up forming other words.

The letters of these words must be in each other, for they have been asked. They seek their freedom there.

The letters of these words are necessarily linked, by the line.

Listen to the people around you and write down some of their words.

A film by Benoît Labourdette, based on an idea by Nassera Tamer (2’25s, 2020).

Love we live it, it guides us or overwhelms us, we enjoy it or suffer from it... but by the way, what is it, exactly?

Write the word “color” with multi-colored letters.

This particular tension, open or not, or even this fear sometimes linked to desire, which the characters themselves seem to express through their respective postures.

Many lovers? How to manage the schedule?

Everything turns away and turns on social networks.

These letters must touch each other, without mixing their bodies.

Where the intersection between the letters is no exception, the word that at first seemed to flee takes its reason.

It is forbidden for the lines to touch each other. And yet they dialogue, all the more so.

Here the letters do not touch, which does not take anything away from the depth of their dialogue; it is courteous love.

A word that expresses the encounter, the most powerful emotion, how to write it itself?

A film by Benoît Labourdette (0’28s, 2020).

There’s a difference in essence between fatigue and sleep.

Everything is organized around the void, or rather in the void. Writing is an adventure, a mysterious journey.

The intersection of the bodies of certain letters is the nature of this writing.

A calligraphy, in my own way, far from the rules and the well done. A calligraphy of words, and not only of letters. A calligraphy as a game to which I invite you.
