Poush Manifesto

2022

6 Bd du Général Leclerc, 92110 Clichy

Carte blanche to the OVNi festival at POUSH Manifesto,

Curating : OVNi and Livia Parmantier

Responding to a carte blanche sent by the artist residency Poush Manifesto in Clichy, OVNi, Objectif Vidéo Nice (OVNi) presents a crossover video program between the award-winning winners of its previous editions, videographers from the program of the next 2021 edition, and a duo in residence at POUSH.

Earth, water and fire are the main components of this exhibition. Here, men mingle with the elements in an experimental design. Perceptions are disturbed, straight lines are melted while only instinct can recreate landmarks. These artists thus offer us a paradigm shift: let the senses travel, reach in contemplation a hypnotic state on the border of the natural and the supernatural.

Flip

2021, vidéo

The duo Julia Borderie & Eloïse Le Gallo in residence at Poush presents Flip, a work produced during two stays in Nice. The perception of the seascape is disturbed by the interplay of a reflective disk that merges the horizon line, the sky and the sea. The disk reveals reality from new angles, it questions our bearings and encourages develop new ones.

La relève

2019, Film 4K et son binaural, 14m36sec

The next generation of Capucine Vever follows the ocean horizon line facing the artist during a month-long residency on the Créac’h semaphore in Ouessant.

 

Seemingly deserted, the maritime landscape nevertheless conceals the incessant comings and goings of cargo ships crossing each other offshore.

The sea, commonly identified as a wild and preserved space, becomes the human theater of new relationships of scale and of a space-time that repeats itself ad infinitum. The narrative voice lists incredible numbers, distances, tons, number of sea freight containers, facing the silent landscape.

The human in the Loop

depuis 2017, 100 min

This video is presented within the framework of the project « The leaves of the tree that does not exist » produced in collaboration with the scientist Romain Trachel.

Like Sisyphus, the artist has been forced for four years to carry out a colossal work of inventorying tree leaves of different species according to a precise protocol: each one is meticulously dried, classified, photographed and listed. This database regularly feeds an AI (Artificial Intelligence) capable of recognizing the individuality of each sheet and generating new ones in turn. As the amount of data increases, the AI ​​creates more elaborate forms, until giving rise to chimeras. This ongoing performance brings to the fore the underground work of man inherent in the proper functioning of AI.

Contre-Nature

2021, Vidéo immersive installation de 13 mètres

Contre-Nature by Jérémy Griffaud presents an imaginary forest landscape with hybrid forms composed of a succession of digitized and animated watercolors. The fauna and flora display human artifices related sometimes to appearance – tattoos, leather, pendants – or to war – weapons, tactical vehicles – as if to prepare to defend themselves from imminent danger. These forms refer to the indissoluble link that binds them to man and to the common risk that they will soon be confronted with.

Le Don [The Gift]

2019, Vidéo, 22 min

Le Don [The Gift] by André Fortino presents an accidental shaping of the ineffable. During his travels in India, the artist immersed himself in observing the religious ceremonies of Theyyam in Kerala. Among the hundred images captured, one fragment caught his attention, that of a young man in a state of ecstasy, holding two torches against his chest. In a desire to capture the depth of this one-and-a-half-minute sequence, the artist slowed the image down to infinity until it caused a software bug. The distorted image elements have been merged so that the flame, the background and the face of the young man merge. This fortuitous result offers a formal interpretation of the inexplicable surpassing of oneself.

Exoview

2020, 1’’, 1920 x 1920 px

In Benoit Barbagli’s Exoview, fire is at the center of an instinctive choreography performed by members of the PALAM collective. A drone films the crossings of the fire at 90° above the ground. The camera by its presence galvanizes the group in its gestural improvisation and gives the action a ritual dimension that goes beyond the idea of ​​the individual.
