This side must be done (creation)

This Side Must be Down is a collaborative performance that is proposed as the hypothetical possible post-apocalyptic genre productions. It is an opportunity to produce/reproduce the tools of these myths, to return to the forms taken by contemporary fears, halfway between the concert film and performative installation, a monstrous collaboration between analogue and digital.

All of these young Belgian and French artists are fascinated by the wastelands of the post-industrial universe and the nightlife, and they have decided to present an outdoor collective performance, This side must be done, which includes new media and improvised music in a reconstituted structure with what they have found or recovered in several abandoned places around Mons during their artist residency.

Collaborative Performance with Arnaud Biais (Fr), Vivian Barigand (Be), Iban Fernandez (Fr), Magali Halter (Fr) et Emmanuel Selva (Fr)

In the framework of the Émergences Numériques’ exchange between Arts2, Villa Arson (Nice) & Transcultures.

Vivian Barigand

Visual artist and experimental musician, Vivian Barigand develops a multidisciplinary practice combining installations, performances and videos, questioning the body, sound and image. His artistic practice is motivated by a constant questioning, a poetic research, real metamorphosis, transformation of the invisible, materialization of memories. His work lingers on thoughts generated by the quotidian, repetitions, the passage of time, whatever the media, it tells stories through an aesthetic translation of his own experiences with simplicity, like a ritual, an obsession, a revelation.

Sa pratique artistique est motivée par un questionnement constant, une recherche poétique, métamorphose du réel, transformation de l’invisible, matérialisation de souvenir. Ses travaux s’attardent sur les pensées générées par le quotidien, les répétitions, le temps qui passe, quelques soient les médiums, il raconte des histoires, via une traduction esthétique de ses propres expériences, avec simplicité, comme un rituel, une obsession, une révélation.
