Overlook

Curated by Rinomina

Cécile Bicler's video, are taken in a game of domino, coherence broken by the fact that half of the domino calls it an other one in a contingent way. Why a six is next to a four, who will find the double which is next to a three? Images of horror movies, images of advertising, family photos or found on Facebook are so many halves of the images-domino, which follow each other by the decision to put the same gesture with an other one who looks like him: hide his face or raise an arm, hug somebody or tilt the head to the back. It is the ordinary jumble of the poses, the movements, the attitudes, cleaned up in a game where gestures become masks. I was born in France and I moved about forty times: Oise, Brittany, Charente-Maritime and Paris. Studies in the Fine arts (School of Fine Arts) of Rennes, Nantes, Strasbourg, Lyon. Emotional and decisive meetings. Passage in the year 2000. Diplomas, post-diplomas. I try to make video, assembly (editing),videoart. I set up a work in secret, which is going to last years: my VHS horror movies collection, blessed in this time by the passage in the DVD. Sensation of nonsense, closed world, disappearance, vanity. I stop everything. With Hervé Coqueret, I make cinema for real, with real production, a production company (Mezzanine Movies), scenarios, never ending files, many computers. Two, three short films are realized presented and distributed: «Patrick Patrick Club Suicide», «Au bord du monde» In duet with Hervé Coqueret, then «Toutes les belles choses», solo. We are satisfied, we travel a little thanks to the festivals, movies are on television. A first feature film project is born. It will put several years not finishing. I press break. Freeze frame. I ‘m tired of screens. I have pain in eyes.I need to see in another way. A blank page, some pastels, many images in my head. I am going to draw. From my room, I see everywhere, at least in my head, this is the overlook. Cécile Bicler

L'immaturité

HD Video - 2017 - 10:04 min «Immaturity is not always innated or imposed by the others. It exists also an immaturity towards which the culture tipped over, when it overcomes when we don’t manage to rise up. We are infantilized by any kind of superior form. Human beings, troubled by his mask, will make for himself secretly a kind of subculture : a world built with the rubbish of the cultural superior world, territory of junk, prebubescent myths, unconfessed passions...secondary territory, of compensation.» Witold Gombrowicz, Foreword in «The Pornography», on 1962.
