a lecture-performance by Nicolas Boone

This second meeting explores, over two days, the uses of the narrative processes and questions the relationship between video and fiction.
The video makers use references and genres (quotation, remake, parody…) to invent, evaluate, and prolong discourse and to generate sensory displacement.
They transgress the conventional codes of storytelling.

Body Double (X) de Brice Dellsperger - 102’ - 2000 - ov fr st en
This film is an integral remake of an Andrzej Zulawski’s film: L’important, c’est d’aimer.
The substitution principle is applied to the whole movie: constraints linked to the sets were conserved, only the sound track comes from the original.
Zulawski’s movie is dark: all the characters are looking for identity and recognition.
In Body Double (X), all the characters (main actors, seconds fiddles (or supporting actors) and extras) are personified in playback by Jean-Luc Verna.
By fragmenting all the identities in one character, the movie questions the identification and dissociation processes.

Hyaloïde - 27’ - 1985 - ov fr
Hyaloid: having the transparency of glass.
What is so transparent is the borderline between the imaginary and the real. Danièle and Jacques-Louis Nyst offer us a series of doors, of openings in this wall which is nevertheless very hermetic.
