We invite you to a screening session with the artist Annabelle Amoros, who will present three of her films, including Tornades (2023), which, along with Churchill – Polar Bear Town (2021), and her forthcoming short Roswell, form a trilogy on the image and entertainment societies of North America. Together with the artist, we will also discover two other short films, Maison des Lilas and Welcome to my World, made in 2013 and 2016.
After the screening, we’ll gather around a galette des rois, a special moment for sharing and exchanging ideas with the artist.
Graduate of the École d’Art de Metz (2012), the École de la Photographie d’Arles (2014), and Le Fresnoy – Studio National des Arts Contemporains (2018).
Annabelle Amoros’s productions relate to video art, film and photography. For each of them, like an anthropologist, the artist immerses herself for several weeks, months or even years in the lives of the characters who populate her films. The themes that emerge from his videos are related to daydreaming, solitude and isolation, but also to surveillance, control and paranoia.
His work is part of the collections of the Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain de Strasbourg and the FRAC Alsace. His work has been exhibited at the FRAC Grand Large and Champagne-Ardennes, the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature and the Musée de l’Histoire de l’Immigration. Her films have been shown at numerous festivals in France and abroad: Indislisboa – Lisbon, Visions du Réel – Nyon, and the Rencontres internationales Paris-Berlin at the Gaîté Lyrique.
Since 2018, she has been collaborating with Clarisse Tupin at Paraíso Production, with whom she directed Churchill, Polar Bear Town, which won numerous festival awards.
