The Reflection of Power
Animation | 4k | couleur | 9:0 | Roumanie | France | 2015

Dans la capitale la plus secrète du monde la foule assiste à un spectacle alors qu`une catastrophe menace d`anéantir la ville...!


Mihai Grecu : plasticien et réalisateur de nationalité roumaine et hongroise; diplômé du Fresnoy, Studio National des Arts Contemporains, il vit et travaille à Paris. Oscillant entre art vidéo, cinéma et animation 3D, son imagerie singulière met en oeuvre, dans une atmosphère déshumanisée, des visions oniriques traversées par des objets parasitaires, architectures modifiées et personnagessymboles. Son travail est montré dans des nombreux festivals de film (Rotterdam, Festival du Nouveau Cinéma à Montréal, videobrasil) et expositions (“Dans la nuit, des images” au Grand Palais, “Labyrinth of my mind” au Cube, “Studio” à la Galerie Les filles du Calvaire, etc).!

L?ouvrage est entièrement fabriqué à partir de morceaux de celluloïds et de marques de manipulations glanées minutieusement de "Birth of a Nation" de DW Griffiths. Alors que nous regardons la fusion lente de débris blancs contre la noirceur, la tension agitée de ce rien suggère une autre narration Américaine à travers l?histoire physique de la pellicule de film.

Ozymandias
Film expérimental | dv | couleur et n&b | 3:20 | Royaume-Uni | 2006

"Nothing beside remains". Le titre du film fait référence au sonnet de Shelley sur la statue brisée du tyran Ramses II. Ozymandias déploie une base de données de repérages de films tirés d'émissions de télévision. Ces archives en cours de signaux de temps presque superflus fournissent une ressource archéologique rappelant la physicalité du cinéma, et une méthode de recherche sur la narration et les processus de perception.

Welshmen, la NASA et des champions de billard rentrent en collision avec des formes avancées d?intelligences extraterrestres. Produit pour « The Golden Record », une exposition contemporaine, « The Legend Of Pwdre Ser » est une réponse aux enregistrements sonores que Carl Sagan et des scientifiques de la NASA avaient placés dans deux vaisseaux spatiaux Voyager lancés en 1977. Contenant des sons, des salutations et des images choisies pour représenter la diversité de la vie et des cultures terrestres, le disque était « destiné à toute forme de vie intelligente extraterrestre, ou à cet homme du lointain futur, qui pourrait le trouver ».

GORDON
Art vidéo | 16mm | couleur | 7:7 | Italie | 2007

Dans « Gordon », Francesca Grilli met l'accent sur l'interaction entre l?héritage, l'identification secrète et la distance dans les relations humaines. L'artiste demande à son grand-père, Giordano Bruno, un homme de quatre-vingt-sept ans, de jouer avec elle à bocce (un sport de précision appartenant à la famille des jeux de boules, étroitement lié à la pétanque), une activité qu'il pratique tous les jours. Cette fois, ils jouent avec de nouvelles règles, tout en gardant inconnus le gagnant et la couleur du jeu, et en utilisant de nombreuses boules et de multiples possibilités.


L'artiste travaille essentiellement avec la photographie, la vidéo et, plus récemment, avec la performance. Sa pratique artistique s'inspire de la vie et la mémoire de sa famille, avec l'appropriation d'un espace-temps alternatif, différent de celui qui nous est offert dans la réalité ordinaire. Les ?uvres de Franscesca Grilli ont fait l?objet de nombreuses expositions tant collectives qu?individuelles, signalons notamment « Open 2007 » à la Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten d?Amsterdam en 2007, « videoREPORT ITALIA 06-07 » à la Galleria d?Arte Contemporanea de Monfalcone (Italie) en 2008, « Manifesta 07 - The rest of now » à Bolzano (Italie) en 2008, « So Close, So Far » au Performance Lab d?Amsterdam en 2008, « Bellavita » au New Chinatown Barber Shop de Los Angeles, « Contemporary Passages » au TENT de Rotterdam (Pays-Bas), « Incontemporanea » à la Triennale de Milan , entre autres. Ses films ont été projetés dans de nombreux festivals, notamment en Allemagne et en Italie.

kiss-o-drome
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 1:16 | Belgique | USA | 2016

In 1980 an extraordinary demonstration hit the streets of the Brazilian city of Sorocaba. Under the military dictatorship, a court had outlawed kisses that undermined public morals. The ruling by Judge Manuel Moralles, which punished such kisses with jail terms, described them this way: Some kisses are libidinous and therefore obscene, like a kiss on the neck, on the private parts, etc., and like the cinematographic kiss in which the labial mucosa come together in an unsophismable expansion of sensuality. The city responded by becoming one huge kissodrome. Never had people kissed so much. Prohibition sparked desire and many were those who out of simple curiosity wanted a taste of the unsophismable kiss. "February 8. GENERAL SMOOCH" by Eduardo Galeano. From: "Children of the Days," first edition published in Mexico by Siglo XXI Editores Mexico, 2012.Translation copyright Mark Fried, Pinguin Books, London 2013.

Johan Grimonprez’s critically acclaimed work dances on the borders of practice and theory, art and cinema, documentary and fiction, demanding a double take on the part of the viewer. Informed by an archaeology of present-day media, his work seeks out the tension between the intimate and the bigger picture of globalization. It questions our contemporary sublime, one framed by a fear industry that has infected political and social dialogue. By suggesting new narratives through which to tell a story, his work emphasizes a multiplicity of histories and realties.

Work version of How to rewind your dog, in development with zap-o-matik.

Johan Grimonprez was born in Roeselare, Belgium in 1962. He studied at the School of Visual Arts and attended the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program in New York. Grimonprez achieved international acclaim with his film essay, Dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y. With its premiere at Centre Pompidou and Documenta X in Kassel in 1997, it eerily foreshadowed the events of September 11th. The film tells the story of airplane hijackings since the 1970s and how these changed the course of news reporting. The movie consists of recycled images taken from news broadcasts, Hollywood movies, animated films and commercials. As a child of the first TV generation, the artist mixes reality and fiction in a new way and presents history as a multi-perspective dimension open to manipulation.Grimonprez's productions have traveled the main festival circuit from Telluride, Los Angeles, Rio de Janeiro, to Tokyo and Berlin. Curatorial projects were hosted at major exhibitions and museums worldwide such as the Whitney Museum in New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich and the Tate Modern in London. Grimonprez's work is included in numerous collections such as the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, the Kanazawa Art Museum, Japan, the National Gallery, Berlin and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark. Grimonprez is currently a faculty member at the School of Visual Arts (New York). Johan Grimonprez lives and works in Brussels and New York.

Double Take
Fiction expérimentale | 16mm | couleur et n&b | 80:0 | Belgique | 2009

Director Johan Grimonprez casts Alfred Hitchcock as a paranoid history professor, unwittingly caught up in a double take on the cold war period. The master says all the wrong things at all the wrong times while politicians on both sides desperately clammer to say the right things, live on TV. DOUBLE TAKE targets the global political rise of ?fear as a commodity?, in a tale of odd couples and double deals. As television hijacks cinema, and the Krushchev and Nixon debate rattles on, sexual politics quietly take off and Alfred himself emerges in a dandy new role on the TV, blackmailing housewives with brands they can`t refuse. The novelist Tom McCarthy writes a plot of personal paranoia to mirror the political intrigue, in which Hitchcock and his elusive double increasingly obsess over the perfect murder ? of each other! Subverting a meticulous array of tv footage and using `The Birds` as an essential metaphor, Grimonprez traces catastrophe culture`s relentless assault on the home, from moving images? inception to the present day.

ZAP-O-MATIK?s productions, acquisitioned by NBC UNIVERSAL, ARTE and CHANNEL 4, travel the main festival circuit from SUNDANCE, TOKYO to BERLIN. Johan Grimonprez?s DOUBLE TAKE, premiered at the BERLINALE FORUM 2009 and is awarded with the Black Pearl Award for Best Director at MEIFF (Abu Dhabi) and a SPECIAL MENTION at the Era New Horizons and Yokohama FF. This docu fiction featuring Alfred Hitchcock during a double take on the Cold War, is a co-production with NIKOVANTASTIC FILMS (DE), VOLYA FILMS (NL), ZDF/ARTE and is supported by FLANDERS AUDIOVISUAL FUND, NORDMEDIA, THE DUTCH AND ROTTERDAM FILM FUNDS, YLE and RAISAT. His award-winning film dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y (68?), an exploration into the annals of airplane hijacking was praised by the London and the New York Times as ?an eccentric rollercoaster ride through history?, the film garnered ?best director? awards at SAN FRANCISCO IFF and TORONTO. Since its highly acclaimed premiere at the CENTRE GEORGES POMPIDOU (Paris), it has toured worldwide (with a cinema audience of over 1 million) and has been acquisitioned by all major broadcast channels in Europe (Channel 4, ARTE) and North America (NBC UNIVERSAL). The DVD release, accompanied by contributions from DON DELILLO and SLAVOJ ZIZEK, is released by OTHER CINEMA (San Francisco), and in distribution with FACETS/MULTIMEDIA (Chicago) and IMAGEFORUM (Tokyo).

The film won the SPIRIT AWARD in NY and the EUROPEAN MEDIA AWARD 2006. The film was selected for, amongst others, the CLERMONT-FERRAND, SEOUL and the LOS ANGELES IFF. JOHAN GRIMONPREZ?s fiction feature HOW TO REWIND YOUR DOG, explores the theme of HAPPY ENDINGS set in a world of relentless consumerism.

In the spring of 2011, during the Photomonth in Krakow, the artist collective Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin invited me to be part of ALIAS, an exhibition with artists who inhabit alternative versions of themselves. An artist and a writer were teamed up with the aim to create a non-existent third persona. The outcome was that none of the artists in the exhibition existed, as those fictional characters took over the creative process. I was assigned to inhabit the Portuguese writer Fernando Pessoa. ?Him and his 240 heteronyms,? Broomberg and Chanarin laughed, ?an idea not unfamiliar to you!? And indeed, Fernando Pessoa wrote much of his oeuvre under multiple, alternative identities. Not so much pseudonyms or aliases but what he termed ?heteronyms,? invented personalities with detailed biographies and interweaving histories. More specifically Pessoa?s ?The Book of Disquiet? became then the point of departure for this film project. All the footage was shot on iPhone recapturing selected details from YouTube endless growing archive, a world where ?heteronyms? abound. Images of the earthquake and the tsunami that recently hit Japan in March that year dominating the net, resonated quietly with the world of disquiet I was envisioning. In addition, I imagined an added female voice to Pessoa?s many male heteronyms while also staying true to the original language of ?The Book of Disquiet?. So, I invited Portuguese writer Isabel Sobral Campos to narrate the selected passages.

Every Day Words Disappear
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 15:0 | Belgique | 2016

In 1515 Machiavelli stated that it would be better for the Prince to be feared, than loved. Some 500 years later, Michael Hardt, political philosopher and co-author of Empire, Multitude and Commonwealth, asks what it would mean to base a political system on love, rather than on fear. How can we transform a society that is increasingly defined by a permanent state of war and cultivated by an industry of fear? How can we realize the paradigm shift necessary to move away from a reality that depends on the exploitation of people and the cult of privatising public resources? Hardt looks for an answer in what he calls `the commons’, by which he refers not only to natural resources, but also to the languages we create- and the relationships we conceive together. In the dystopian city-state Alphaville, of Godard`s eponymous film, all words and concepts relating to the idea of love and affection have been banned. When actress Anna Karina tries to express her feelings, she has to reinvent the words, for the concept of love is foreign to her. Like the protagonist in Alphaville, Hardt suggests that we need to redefine the tools to act politically together. Hardt embarks on a journey to identify the transformative powers of the ongoing struggle to re-invent democracy. Within this struggle he understands `the commons` as an antidote against a society run by fear; an inspiration for a paradigm that is based on dialogue and cooperation.

Johan Grimonprez’s critically acclaimed work dances on the borders of practice and theory, art and cinema, documentary and fiction, demanding a double take on the part of theviewer.

Raymond Tallis | On Tickling
Vidéo expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 8:0 | Belgique | Pays-Bas | 2017

In this short film by Johan Grimonprez, philosopher/neurologist Raymond Tallis argues that consciousness is not an internal construct, but rather relational. Through the intriguing notion that humans are physically unable to tickle themselves, Tallis explores the philosophical notion that we become ourselves only through dialogue with others.

Artiste multimédia, réalisateur, curateur, écrivain, Johan Grimonprez est né à Roeselare, en Belgique, en 1962. Il a étudié l’anthropologie culturelle puis la photographie et les nouveaux médias à l’Académie royale des Beaux-Arts de Gand, en Belgique. Membre de la School of Visual Arts de New York, il a également suivi l’Independent Study Program au Whitney Museum. Actuellement, il vit et travaille entre Bruxelles et New York. Johan Grimonprez travaille aux frontières de l’art et du cinéma, du documentaire et de la fiction. Son travail, acclamé par la critique, sollicite une double analyse de la part du spectateur. Opérant une archéologie des médias contemporains, son travail interroge les tensions de l’intime dans le cadre d’une société globalisée. Il questionne notre réalité, façonnée par l’industrie de la peur, peur qui a envahi le dialogue social et la politique. En proposant de nouvelles écritures à travers lesquelles un récit peut se déployer, son oeuvre met l’accent sur une multiplicité d’histoires et de réalités. Enfant de la première génération télé, l’artiste mélange d’une nouvelle manière fiction et réalité et présente l’histoire comme une dimension multi-perspectiviste ouverte à la manipulation. Il a conquis la critique internationale grâce à son premier film-essai « dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y » (composez H-I-S-T-O-I-R-E) en 1997, félicité aux festivals de Toronto et de San Francisco. Ses longs métrages « Double Take » (2009) et « Shadow World » (2016) ont reçu de multiples prix dans des festivals internationaux. Grimonprez remporte en 2005 le ZKM International Media Award, le Spirit Award et le Black Pearl Award en 2009 lors de l’Abu Dhabi Film Festival. Son œuvre a également été acquise par NBC Universal, ARTE et BBC/FILM 4. En 2016, son film ‘‘Shadow World’’ (Monde d’ombres) a obtenu une bourse de la part du Sundance Institute et a été diffusé en avant-première au Tribeca International Filmfestival de New-York la même année. Ce film remporte le prix du meilleur long-métrage documentaire au Festival International du film d’Edimbourg ainsi qu’au 61ème Festival International du Film de Valladolid en Espagne. En 2017, il remporte le « Ensor Best Documentary 2017» au Ostend Film Festival, en Belgique. Le travail de Johan Grimonprez a été présenté dans les principales institutions du monde entier, notamment au Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), à la Pinakothek der Moderne (Munich), au MoMA (New York). Ses installations font également partie des collections du Centre Pompidou, du 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, à Kanazawa (Japon), ainsi que de celles de la Tate Modern (Londres).

Three Thoughts on Terror
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 5:0 | Belgique | 2018

In Three Thoughts on Terror, investigative journalists Robert Fisk, Jeremy Scahill and Vijay Prashad approach the concept of terror from their respective angles. Fisk dismantles terror as a term that is rendered meaningless to alienate political movement from its origins: justice and injustice. Scahill points out that terror is a relative term, as its interpretation depends on which side of the bombing you’re on. Using the absurd example of the ‘The Hague Invasion Act’, he shows how the US sticks its thumb in the eye of international law: “Some republicans in the US Congress were discussing putting forward legislation that they referred to as “The Hague Invasion Act”, the idea that if US personnel were ever to be brought to The Hague on war crimes charges, the US could deploy military forces to The Hague to snatch those personnel and liberate them from the evil clutches of international law.” Vijay Prashad takes rather a philosophical approach, reciting Pakistani poet Faiz Ahmad Faiz: “what you see around you, leaves you with no obligation but to feel something. And if that feeling cannot be controlled, you have to do something about it. You can’t refuse this world.”

Two Travellers to a River
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 1:24 | Belgique | 2018

When asked a question on politics, late Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish once answered: “I write about love to expose the conditions that don’t allow me to write about love.” In Two Travellers to a River Palestinian actress Manal Khader recites such a poem by Mahmoud Darwish: a concise reflection on how things could have been.

Johan Grimonprez’s critically acclaimed work dances on the borders of practice and theory, art and cinema, documentary and fiction, demanding a double take on the part of the viewer. Informed by an archeology of present-day media, his work seeks out the tension between the intimate and the bigger picture of globalization. It questions our contemporary sublime, one framed by a fear industry that has infected political and social dialogue. By suggesting new narratives through which to tell a story, his work emphasizes a multiplicity of realities. Grimonprez’s curatorial projects have been exhibited at museums worldwide, including the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich; and MoMA. His works are in the collections of Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa; and Tate Modern, London. His feature films include dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y (1997, in collaboration with novelist Don DeLillo) and Double Take (2009, in collaboration with writer Tom McCarthy) and Shadow World (2016, in combination with journalist Andrew Feinstein).

Johan Grimonprez transposes an extract from Meg Stuart`s compelling choreography ?No Longer Ready-Made? to the anonymous waiting room of a railway station. This colourless space along with nameless travellers provides the excellent setting for Stuart`s hectic and intense convulsions. A train ride along the nightly Brussels northern area supports the vitriolic New York City prose of David Wojnarowicz on the soundtrack.

Johan Grimonprez (°1962) studied photography and Mixed Media at the Academie in Ghent, after which he spent several years in New York at the School of Visual Arts through the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program and he obtained his postgraduate degree from the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. He lives and works both in Ghent and New York, where he is a lecturer at the School of Visual Arts. Grimonprez is best-known for his video work DIAL H-I-S-T-O-R-Y, which became an international success after screenings at the Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris) and during Documenta X in Kassel (1997), transcending the established delineations between visual arts, cinema and television, between fiction, documentary and ?art video?. In this and other work Grimonprez mainly investigates the use of mass media as a political instrument and the construction of realities in an era of infotainment and media saturation. `Zaptitude` is the central idea ? the surreal poetry of `channel hopping`, which enables the spectator to write his/her own story. His work has been shown and awarded, among other places, at the San Francisco Film Festival and Images Toronto, on ARTE TV (Germany/France) and Channel 4 (VK), in the Whitney Museum (New York) and Tate Modern (London).

A car with a big sound system broadcasts a text of Eduardo Affonso Reidy on his modern architecture precepts. It drives around the Conjunto Habitacional Pedregulho, a social housing complex build from 1946 by the same architect and also called Minhocão (the big worm) by his inhabitants. The ballet of the driving car, combined with interviews, sound extracts from the fiction film « Lucio Flávio, the passenger of agony » (shot partly in the site) and other scenes, produce a portrait of a major modernist Brazilian building and of the popular northern zone´s context of Rio de Janeiro. The film raises issues about patrimony and memory of social housings in a place which is about to be renovated after 50 years of state´s abandonment and autonomous management.

Vidéo expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 15:9 | Canada | 2019

Based on the artist’s poetic reconfiguration of Susan Sontag’s 1969 text The Aesthetics of Silence and drawing on his studio practice, this work is comprised of a series of artistic gestures, observations and small performances that explore the erotics of philosophy, the uselessness of poetry, and dumb yearning.

Troy Gronsdahl is an artist and cultural worker from Saskatoon. Gronsdahl studied at the University of Saskatchewan and holds a master’s degree from Emily Carr University of Art and Design where he was the recipient of the Governor General’s Academic Medal. Gronsdahl has received a number of awards including grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and Saskatchewan Arts Board.

STRIKE A POSE

Jouant sur la limite entre documentaire et œuvre vidéo, Strike a pose suit Ariane V., body-buildeuse et Docteur en science de la Vie d’origine belge vivant en Suisse. Durant 9 mois, Maëlle Gross a côtoyé Ariane. Cet investissement dans la durée avait pour but de créer une intimité entre l’artiste et son sujet, afin que ce dernier puisse entrer dans un processus de lâcher prise, gage de confiance. Au moyen d’interviews, de la danse et d’immersion dans le monde du bodybuilding, peu à peu nous nous rendons compte d’un état d’ambïguité du corps. Pousser les limites physiques, se détacher de sa propre enveloppe pour la traiter comme une sculpture. Arrivé au paroxysme de sa métamorphose, la protagoniste devient alors, hors-norme. Hors-norme des critères de beauté stéréotypée du corps genré auxquelles elle est associée. Une invitation à l’introspection subjective dans l’imagerie contrôlée du corps où la limite entre le raisonnable et l’excessif se fait de plus en plus petite au fur et à mesure de la transformation radical qu’Ariane a entrepris sur son corps.


Née le 20 novembre 1988 à Lausanne en Suisse, Maëlle Gross montre très jeune un intérêt particulier pour la photographie et la vidéo. Diplômée en 2013 de la Haute Ecole d’Art et Design de Genève, elle déménage ensuite à Londres et intègre la Goldsmiths University où elle obtient en 2015 son Master of Fine Art avec mention. Son travail a notamment été présenté lors du festival vidéo R4 à Paris, a participé à une performance collective à l’Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) de Londres ainsi qu`à la galerie Large Glass à Londres sous le collectif Almosthere. Aujourd’hui, Maëlle Gross vit et travaille entre Londres et Genève.

Le marquis de Sade et ses écrits (sélectionnés parmi les diatribes philosophiques imprégnant sa correspondance et ses romans), associés aux dialogues critiques d'écrivains et d'académiciens influencés par son oeuvre : tout ceci est l'origine du parfum enivrant pénétrant les pensées et teintant les actes de trois membres d'une famille aristocratique. Leur résidence secondaire est une élégante demeure provençale au milieu de champs de lavande et d'oliviers, au-dessous de la forteresse étincelante du château du marquis au sommet de la colline. Errant dans les ruines des fortifications, autrefois châteaux, chacun des personnages joue une des facettes de la philosophie du marquis de Sade : ils s'adonnent à tous les plaisirs grisants de la chair et de l'abondance, avant de s'effacer (tôt ou tard, selon les lois de la Nature) devant leur inévitable destin. Le film est à voir et à comprendre selon deux niveaux : premièrement sous un angle narratif, dans lequel chaque personnage agit et réagit en fonction des autres et de son environnement, et deuxièmement, en tant qu'analyse des différents rôles au sein de la famille (en particulier la relation de la réalisatrice/fille avec sa famille). Dans les deux cas, le marquis de Sade et son écriture deviennent le terrain et le langage par lesquels toute communication est possible, faisant disparaitre toutes les barrières pesonnelles et sociales de la condition humaine et du secret.

Katharina Gruzei combines a sociopolitical issue and a precise formal concept, which is rare in experimental film. Inspired by the Lumière brothers? first film, La sortie de l?usine Lumière à Lyon, which shows a large number of workers leaving their factory?s gate, Gruzei begins in the interior, in a passageway (made to seem incredibly long by the editing) that emerges from the darkness. More and more of them walk down the dark, flickering hallway. By these scenes the weirdness of the space and the menacing quality of a mass of people who could form a resistance movement becomes increasingly evident. All relevant questions concerning the on-the-job reality experienced by these workers, most of whom are women, can be formulated by means of association: Is it nighttime when they leave the factory? What kind of work do they have to do? What do female laborers earn these days? How long does it take them to get home from this monstrous factory, and when will it be moved to a low-wage country?

Studies abroad at the Art Department of the Universtiy of California Santa Barbara and at the University of Fine Arts Berlin for Visual Cultural Studies in the class of Katharina Sieverding. Katharina Gruzei works with photography, film, video, installations, media-performances, sound and objects. Working conceptually, she experiments between these disciplines and arrives at an unique crossover language.

Art vidéo | dv | couleur | 70:0 | Canada | 2007

"Lots" est une vidéo en 24 scènes. L'artiste développe son alter ego à travers une série d'esquisses reliées les unes aux autres, qui sont montrées tour à tour pour former la base d'une exposition. Les vidéos sont comme de petites capsules, traitant de sujets tels que les relations familiales, l'identité, la mythologie du soi, la maladie, la mort et la nature de l'effort créatif. Ses grandes réflexions sur la vie sont traversées d'anecdotes comiques et personnelles.


Milutin Gubash est né à Novi Sad, en Yougoslavie. Il vit à Montréal, au Québec, depuis 2006. Il a monté de nombreuses expositions au Canada, aux Etats-Unis et en Europe. Il utilise la photographie, la vidéo et la représentation, en faisant souvent participer des membres de sa famille ou des amis. Le fait d'être loin de sa propre culture l'oblige à questionner et à réinventer sa propre cosmologie. Les anecdotes autobiographiques, les potins et les insinuations forment le matériau réel et fantasmé qu'il utilise pour représenter les caprices de la vie d'artiste.
