Plastic Experimentation / Une expérimentation de plastique

ART

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I’ve taken lots of photos of coloured plastic sheets. I bought these sheets a few weeks ago and I didn’t know what I should use them for. But one day when the sunlight was pouring through the window, I held the sheets up to the light and the effect was amazing!

Teenage Dream: Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides

FILM/BOOKS

The Virgin Suicides 3

The Virgin Suicides (1999)

Director: Sofia Coppola

If you haven’t seen this film before, you’re probably thinking that it will be gruesome with a name like “Virgin Suicides”. But this film is far from a horror. Set in suburban America during the 1970s, it dreamily captures the final year in the lives of 5 sisters.

Sun, Salt, Spiral: Tacita Dean’s JG

ART

Tacita Dean - JG 3

During my trip to Paris I visited the Musée d’Art Moderne where, in a completely black room void of any external light, I watched a projection of Tacita Dean’s film JG (2013). The film features footage of salt lakes in Utah, desert landscapes and expanses of water. In different scenes there are images “collaged” into the film, creating surreal compositions which are in fact rather visually pleasing. Footage showing a digger moving loads of sand and rubble, and a train cutting across the landscape reassures the viewer that this is a place here on earth, not a distant planet.

IDEAS

Paris

Donc aujourd’hui est l’anniversaire du Projet Culturel! Je ne peux pas croire que ça fait un an que j’ai commencé ce blog et j’ai aimé l’écrire. J’ai quelques idées passionnantes pour ce blog : je vais réorganiser les posts, il y aura 3 idées principales – partager (mon art), découvrir (les artistes) et inspirer (les films et la musique) ; en plus, il y aura une autre langue, l’allemand!
