Au-delà du ciel gris - Film - 17min - 2017

présenté dans le cadre de l'exposition panorama 19


Pauline must go to a piano class, but she suddenly dies and finds herself in the mountains. A drone, her “boatman,” will guide her during a long walk.

When creating this fictional film, my desire was for spectators to “follow” a person who passes into the great beyond. I wanted to confront them with time so that they could appreciate, gaze at and explore the images I’d shot. I wanted to treat this journey, this pathway in a very poetic way. The images that I had in my mind for this ascent were in the realm of a visual poem.

Robin Labriaud

Born in France in 1990, a graduate of the Beaux-Arts, Robin Labriaud makes works at the border of reality and fiction. His films and visual works are visual poems that can be appreciated in a dilated time frame in which we are able to concentrate on the details that make up his images. He works mainly in video, installation and sound and his pieces have been seen at contemporary art events and at the Louvre-Lens, as well as in Beijing. He is currently based in Lille (France), where he is doing a post-diploma course at Le Fresnoy - Studio National des Arts Contemporains.
