(LES OCCASIONS) installation and live performance by Manuel Reynaud (aka VJ Le Branchu, ethnocif collective) accompanied by Marie Frier who plays accordion and electronic instruments.
With this audiovisual performance, I try to reach a documentary form, to show (some of) our world. During one year, I follow the everyday life of a flea market, this almost autonomous space-time continuum, on the edges of our consumer and waste society. This periodic patch where social diversity still exists, is a favorable place for the documentary movie sensible to “l’être au monde”, as the works of Raymond Depardon or Nicolas Philibert.
This place is also rich in formal beauty, shapes and colors of bric-a-brac, and VJing can handle this diverse visual stimuli. In one year, I formed a large multimedia bank in collaboration with fellows’ cameramen, soundmen, photographers, draftsmen, and musicians. I mix these various media live on a three screen setup, where various looks coexist, from political to enchanted/wonderful one. A dive into our collective memory, of which old artefacts are the holders. A pop up of our childhood where the most valuable treasures hid themselves in the everyday life.
