Marcel Dinahet
France, 2008
video art

In line with experimental video of the 1980’s, this video graphic work explores the intimate relations between water and land. Dinahet’s approach is similar to Gaston Bachelard who thinks by dreaming reality using elements like water and fire (Water and Dreams, The Psychoanalysis of Fire) Dinahet dives into reality : if he observes water he actually swims in it to film. According to him « the plunge into the unknown is always a dive into water ». . . Running water. (Anne Bonnin)

Christelle Familiari
France, 2010
video art

Video has been an important medium for Christelle Familiari ever since the first pieces she produced in the 90’s. Her practice has expanded over the years, finally encompassing diverse mediums (sculptures, objects, collages…) but video has always kept a significant and determining position. Her first video works focused on intimacy and the relation to the Other through confrontation between image and viewer.(...) The aesthetics of these silent, black and white videos, their presentation in a loop, as well as the mechanization of the bodies, which yield to ceaseless movements, contribute to the deliberately burlesque potential of these films.
