Everyone is free to see what they want in it. Everyone is free to see what they can in it. We are in an in-between, a strange encounter between lost souls and an unsettling place. Content and form overlap to give life to an uncertain space-time in which a tired man moves about, searching, without really believing in it, for a response that he already knows.

"We're all subjective beings and trapped in our own realities and our own biographical stories and physical bodies and our histories - and that's the only way we can experience the world."
Charlie Kaufman

Damien Jibert

Damien Jibert, born in 1989 in Dijon, (France) graduated from EMA Fructidor, Chalon-sur-Saône (France) in 2014 (visual arts). He lives and works in Lille (France).

Damien Jibert creates a universe half-way between cinema and the digital world characterised by a lo-fi aesthetics and black humour. He explores ways of articulating narratives out of fragmented fictions peopled by unusual, almost naïve characters, struggling with difficult realities and their own loneliness. Jibert’s work has been shown at the Hors Pistes festival at the Centre Pompidou, at the Mulhouse Biennale and at the Gaïté-Lyrique in Paris.
