Anaïs-Tohé Commaret

Born in 2024 (France)

She explores the sensory potential of the film medium and her work is defined by a back and forth between fiction and documentary. She put this to good use during her studies at the Beaux-arts de Paris in the studio of Clément Cogitore. She then entered Le Fresnoy - Studio National d’Arts Contemporains, where she learned from Ben Russell. She also met Nicolas Jardin, a young lighting cameraman, and together they created striking images that won them the grand prize for video arts at the Coté-Court festival in 2020. Anais-Tohé Commaret won the jury’s “Coup de Coeur” prize awarded by Mac Val, the Palais de Tokyo and Lafayette Anticipation at the Montrouge Salon d’Arts Contemporain in June 2022. Her vaporous and phantasmagorical universe stems from her fascination with characters she defines as anti-heroes/ghosts. These are beings who wander between the intervals, looking for a place where they can feel at ease. She also works as an erotic dancer in a Parisian cabaret. From this experience has arisen a new form of questioning in her approach to the capitalist system, to work and to the self-sufficiency of TDS.
