Movement

Series of 313 photographs to represent 36 minutes of time.

An attempt to visually symbolize the mental effect of an alarm clock that rings, and rings again, and rings again in the morning... With an evolution of the effect on the brain waves, as time (...)

A method for the sustainability of projects.

Video loop by Benoît Labourdette (1’10s, 2013).

The clouds move slowly, if you look at the sky for a brief moment, but seem to go very quickly if you take the time to look. The relativity of perceived time... And if we superimpose the pictures of themselves over time ? Or rather, if we (...)

The criteria of composition When we do the framing of an image with a camera, we often use the classical criteria of image composition, inherited from the tradition of figurative painting. Which is quite natural. Things as we see them in the (...)

You have to put yourself in danger in the creation of art. This does not mean being obscene or making a fool of yourself. But to go deeper, to dig. It is essential. We don’t do this to be nice, but to make things (...)

Music album

Set of 18 songs composed and performed by Benoît Labourdette. Nine of them are sung, the rest are instrumental. Music and sound material is constructed from samples of organs and sounds of the world. The lyrics are written without the help of (...)

A film by Benoît Labourdette (1’22s, 2020).

At night, truths are sometimes revealed to us so lucid that they don’t survive the return of light.

It is the art of time, of movement, of emotion, of rhythm, of life, of everything we want, of the image among others. It is to reduce it terribly to say that it is the art of the image.

Getting back in touch with nature is not that simple.

You may already have seen these very ugly horizontal lines on video images, very visible in the movements. Therefore we see from time to time ? Where did they come from ? How to get rid ? We must once again, back to the story to understand the (...)

It is extremely important. I photograph all the works there, I keep track of what happened there, but I don’t leave things there, I leave that space empty, fallow, free. I don’t have anything to prove, nor to show to someone who would pass by. I (...)

Primitive motion pictures.

Series of 50 automatic photographs.

Photographic, digital and railway mechanics produce images that fix natural phenomena as much as their own coordinated natures. Machines as new natures that transform our gaze.

Diving inside the organic movement of the wind maybe.

Video creation by Benoît Labourdette (2’58s, 2014).

The small trace left on a surface, on a “skin”, is perhaps the most important thing there is.

The practice of feminism seems to me to be an essential stake in the cultural actions, because the awareness of the systems of domination allows to go towards more equality, thus to contribute to the democracy. But how to “put into practice (...)

To shoot from our homes, not to shoot our homes. Film what we see from your window and tell an important memory about this image, to share it with others we don’t know. Dare to let ourselves be surprised by the movement of our own thought, and (...)
