SUPERNOVA - ELECTRO LIVE CINEMA

Mash-up stage show


SUPERNOVA is a project combining motion picture and live musical entertainment based on public domain found footage from the first half of the 20th century, directed by film editor and director Beatrice Segolini and set to live music by musician and electronic composer Joachim Planer.

An interpretative re-edit of vintage clips, movies and commercials across decades, composing an impressionistic portrait of our society’s imagery between past and future, wonders and dystopias, naiveties and horrors. An experimental live soundscape overlays images decontextualizing them, connecting new meanings, joining the euphoria of our past promises with cynical echoes from our present.

Deconstructed in this manner, those outdated images reflect back to us our endless unawareness: how much of what we take pride of today will tomorrow make our grandsons cringe? How many of our past horrors still live in our collective subconscious? How much did we simply learn to hide?

PALOMAR STUTTGART

Socially engaged site-specific project of artistic hybridation


Where does mutation become visible?
Is it something observable on a microscopic scale? Or is it something appearing only with distance, on a quantitative level? On which scale does it start to manifest? What does it mean for individuals, and how does it look like for the communities touched by it? Even more: how does it feel like?

From documentary to abstraction, it aims to let an audiovisual landscape of the city’s complexity emerge from the initially fragmentary surface of microscopic stories. Starting from an exploration of the local points of pressure, to assemble a multisensory portrait of the urban organism in its intricate and multiple dimensions: a polyedric fusion between music, live performance and creative documentary, presented on an open public event.

LÁ HAUT SUR NOS FRONTS

Visual poem


Posthumous video-poem edited by revisiting the audio and video recordings from the peculiar impressionist journal of Belgian poet Jean-Philippe Dauphin (1978 - 2014†).                     
Few months before his death, Jean-Philippe wrote:     
  
“It’s been an entire life spent analysing, trying to accept the approximation
which flows and lashes down on the quay of our needs - and which becomes a joy,
as soon as we laugh over our bold preassumptions
and over the silliness of our certainties.”

Commissioned by Frédéric Guillaume
for the 2017 commemoration at the Royal Cinémathèque of Belgium
