I’m very happy to welcome French artist/filmmaker Boris Labbé to virtually discuss an animation he finds inspiring at the next Manifest. The live stream will happen on Thursday, March 18th at 19:00 Rotterdam/Central Europe time (that’s 18:00 in London, 2PM in New York and 11AM in LA – one hour off than usual in the USA because of daylight’s savings). The event will be available to view after the fact, but if you tune in live you can contribute to the discussion via the chat box.
You may know Boris from his animated short films ‘Rhizome’ and ‘La Chute’ which both took festivals by storm in 2015 and 2018 respectively.
Boris Labbé is a graphic and video artist and director who works mainly with animation and installation. He is interested in the way space and time are ordered in film and video production and in exploring and disrupting the patterns that result. In his projects, classical cinematic ordering evolves towards video installation devices that synthesize major technological revolutions of the past century with the latest digital technology. His work ties together the device of looping and the theme of regeneration, exploring evolution and the perpetual loss of and return to life through cyclical editing.
