Travail en cours, un film de Daniel Denise, 54 minutes
Daniel Denise suggested that Paul André Fortier expand his reach, by seeking out some of the places and people who make up the social fabric of Nancy. This proposal was concretized by a brief
dance performance in 30 different locations representing a variety of occupations: a fire station, factory, bakery, restaurant kitchen, garage, etc.
Daniel Denise lives and works in Nancy. After graduating in 1987with a fine arts degree from the École nationale des Beaux-Arts de Nancy, his work initially revolved around humorous photo
self-portraits. Today he uses various media to express himself: photography, video, text, sound, sculpture and installation. He works on both solo projects, the latest of which is entitled
Stanislas Urbi & Orbi, and on group projects, including Inventaire du Musée du Bonheur, La marche du temps, and Par nature.
30x30 - Poursuite, film of a visual installation by Samuel Bianchini, 30 minutes
The Thiers tower dominates downtown Nancy. Samuel Bianchini and his students chose to create an original visual work in connection with Paul-André Fortier’s Solo 30x30 using this building, which
has such a strong presence in the city’s landscape. Inspired by the solo choreography, computer-generated beams are projected onto the building and change constantly. The light sweeps, flashes,
stops and starts, giving a somewhat human behaviour to the machine. This work was presented the night following the final performance of Solo 30x30 in Nancy. The DVD captures this event on
Samuel Bianchini’s work questions the impact of interactive media on how we represent and relate to reality. He works with scientists and computer research labs and is a member of CRECA-LAM
(Centre de recherches d'esthétique du cinéma et des arts audiovisuels - Laboratoire des arts et médias at the Sorbonne) and Citu (Création interactive transdisciplinaire universitaire). He is
also a lecturer at the Université de Valenciennes and teaches at the École nationale supérieure d'art de Nancy. His work is regularly exhibited in France and abroad.
