Les images circulent. Les formes artistiques se nourrissent les unes les autres. Le cinéma se nourrit des arts. Mais cette circulation n’est pas à sens unique : l’art contemporain utilise également l’expérience cinématographique pour penser les images et les formes plastiques de la création en s’affranchissent de toute frontière. Il n’est donc pas rare de croiser des fragments de cinéma au détour d’une exposition, révélant peut-être une nouvelle matière pour les artistes contemporains. Cette conférence éclairera quelques aspects de cette circulation des images et des relations artistiques dans les œuvres, de Marcel Duchamp à Douglas Gordon, en passant par Pierre Huyghe, Alfred Hitchcock, Peter Tscherkassky, Abbas Kiarostami et quelques autres.

"Ambitious projects are the thing of legend in Hollywood. One of the most ambitious of choices in recent memory came from filmmaker Gus Van Sant, who followed up his Oscar-winning drama Good Will Hunting with a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. Not only was Van Sant remaking a classic, but he was doing so shot-by-shot—each frame would be copied from what Hitchcock did in the original film. Van Sant admits Psycho was an experiment that didn’t work, but acknowledges the film has gained more appreciation as an art piece in recent years. It’s an experiment, as Van Sant said, and it serves as proof that there’s something magical about a singular film." (Adam Chitwood, Collider)
