Erwin Olaf, Samuel Rousseau et Yang Yongliang — Video Show
Erwin Olaf, Samuel Rousseau et Yang Yongliang
Past: September 8 → October 6, 2012
Through surveying the sounds and images one discovers the work of three distinct artists and the way each one of them reveals their artistic universe through the medium of video.
If Erwin Olaf, Samuel Rousseau and Yang Yongliang all question in their works the matter of the mise en scène and of the architectural construction in the video art, each one of them are distinguished by their unique and singular approach.
In Erwin Olaf works, each detail of the mise en scène is chosen with such attention that the characters seem to disappear to the profit of the elements from the decor. Therefore, those elements seem to be the key of his works. As for Samuel Rousseau, his videos invest space and extend themselves in a true installation. They are broadcast within banal and daily objects that thereby set up to the row of a work of art. Yang Yongliang, for its part, builts in his videos imaginary cities in which landscapes and nature are linked with a modern urban architecture. Nature and town planning are thus confronted in landscapes with the esthetical of an antique calligraphy.
