"10 days, 30 artists: the gallery Le Huit is preparing to present a panorama of young video creation. (...) Bringing together some thirty artists, all students or young graduates of art schools, the Ecran total program is intended to be dense, moving and eclectic: "a journey around the medium of video through installations, performances, projections, short films and Vjing". "The idea is that each evening should be different," says Anne Bourrassé. The festival will therefore be inaugurated on Thursday, February 5th with an installation by Marion Flament and Jimme Cloo before giving way the next day to an exhibition composed of a "video ping pong" by Guillaume Delaforestdivonne and Pauline Lavogez, a conversation in images constructed over time to the rhythm of one video per week. The basement of the gallery will be occupied by an installation by the enigmatic secret society Solomon Coster & Associates. After a stopover on Thursday, February 12 on the work of Sophie Kitching, inspired by a story by Chateaubriand, Le Huit will host a BYOB ("Bring your Own Beamer") on Friday evening. Invented by the Dutch-Brazilian artist Rafaël Rozendaal, BYOBs are participatory evenings during which artists are invited to come with their own video projector to show their work, filling the space with images and sounds as the participants arrive. Change of universe for Valentine's Day with the collective Polychrome who will present a selection of experimental erotic and pornographic short films. Finally, on Sunday 15th, the music video directors Louise Ernandez and Irwin Barbé will propose a contemplative end of the afternoon to the rhythm of a VRGR dj mix. A well-deserved rest after a full week!"
