INDOCAM is an experimental POV travelog, filmed on the sly during a three months’ artist residency in India in 2012. Right from the first glimpse through the hidden camera, we travel along, somewhere on the artist’s body: visa office, subway, airport, immigration, supermarket, civic reception, art opening, religious ritual, protest vigil … By observing the unobserved, we catch glimpses into the singular nature of even the most of mundane places and occurrences. Painstakingly composited frame by frame, the video looks at the crisscrossing of the artist’s itinerary with other private lives and public events that would shape the politics of India.

GETTING OUT OF ROUT(IN)E

Videoformes 2021

Clermont-Ferrand/FR


During the first lockdown in France, VIDEOFORMES launched the call for project “Getting Out of Rout(in)e” and collected more than 90 videos, covering the period from March to July 2020. At the time, the situation was still unprecedented and exceptional. 

Let yourself go through glances from all horizons: experimental and sensible videos and quirky or poetic visions regarding this strange period.

The videos are gathered in units about 30 minutes each.

digital & kinetic works


Opening: Saturday, April 28, 2018, 8 p.m. - 10 p.m.

April 28 - May 08, 2018 - by appointment



India Material is an artistic take on the spiritual concept of reincarnation, the endless cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. The fruit of an artist residency in India, the works integrate video with early forms of animation and historic devices, precursors to modern time-based media. The loop in particular acts as a vehicle to virtually sculpt from everyday life essential, alas transient moments while keeping everything in flux – replay ad infinitum.
