Hoël Duret
La Vie Héroïque de B. S. : Un opéra en 3 actes, 2013-2015

Past: May 24 → June 12, 2016

In this video-opera, Hoël Duret shows us the investigative journey of a fictional character named B.S., a capricious designer and awkward heir to some of the rational principles that modernity has left us. B.S. is a winner and accepts a final challenge, to redesign the chicken egg. The decidedly ‘60s esthetic hesitates between DIY and design, teeming with allusions to postwar industrial works while heralding the failure of modernist thinking, fascinated with its hero. The three acts were filmed at as many exhibitions that were laid out like film sets (Frac Pays de la Loire, the Mosquito Coast Factory, and the Zoo Galerie).


From tuesday to friday:

Screenings at 14:10 ; 15:10 ; 16:10 et 17:10

Saturday and Sunday:

Screenings at 14:10 ; 15:10 ; 16:10 ; 17:10 and 18:10


Devoted to film and video, “Crédakino” is a screening space in Crédac. It is hosting film and video programs developed by artists and curators, and a selection of recent works that enjoys the generous support of the Fondation Nationale des Arts Graphiques et Plastiques.
