Périot Meets Acconci
Curator: Jean-François Chougnet | Session: Open Call – Screening of competition finalists
Périot meets Acconci applies the conceptual proposal of Vito Acconci — “while walking a continuous line down a city street. Try not to blink. Each time I blink: snap a photo.” — to the experience of watching the short movie 21.04.02 by Jean-Gabriel Périot «based on super-fast editing of images from TV, film, advertising, pornography…». Two people watch the film at the same time and try not to blink; each time they blink, the image is revealed.
Production, direction and edition: Cinza Nunes
Performance: Ricardo Vieira Lisboa and Cinza Nunes
