This two-day programme presents the work of Jacques Perconte, a visual artist and a major figure in the French digital art and avant-garde scene.
Submitted by Birkbeck Cinema
Perconte’s prolific and varied work – films, but also generative pieces, audiovisual performances, photographs, and installations – has been focusing on landscapes for more than fifteen years. He travels to specific places, be it in France, Scotland, or Madeira, and then wanders and roves around, filming and re-filming the same area, exploring the various natural elements, forest, sky, sea, birds, but also traces of human life inscribed in these territories. Then, with his highly sophisticated tools he re-works the digital flow and takes us on a journey into shapes, movements, colours, light, and texture, revealing intimate and unexpected aspects of a performed landscape, as well as unforeseen features of digital moving images. Perconte’s films are a poetic encounter between nature, culture, and digital technologies.
These two programmes are a rare opportunity to experience these remarkable journeys, meet Jacques Perconte and discuss his singular approach to both films and the world we live in.
