Video ART on Display

As a continuation of works presented in the window in the Place des Terreaux, five experiments with video art shown in the urban environment were presented in 2001, 2002 and 2003 in various storefronts in the neighboring areas on the slopes of the Croix Rousse. Four of these programs made reference to the body, creating a play of both direct scale with the urban surroundings and direct proximity with the passer-by. Playing on the simplicity of the body as referent and the effectiveness of image and sound, these works completely transformed the everyday environment over the course of several evenings. These programs provided the opportunity for a comprehensive outreach with the shopkeepers and artisans, from the Arab grocer to the fashion designer, who lent their storefronts.

Funded as part of La Politique de la Ville.
