Here are some photos of Praxinoscopicnic. It is about one metre in diameter, and one metre high. The video was shot in my studio: it’s really to show the moment when it becomes animated, about 50 seconds in. The camera doesn’t like the stroboscopic light, so of course it’s best to experience it live – like all my installations.
The Praxinoscopicnic was shown in May 2014 at le 102, rue d’Alembert, Grenoble, during Stellaire Amas.
It was first exhibited as part of a day of ‘Ovnivins chez Les Belges”: a day of natural wine tastings and conferences with the vigneron Gilles Azzoni, and the author of some titles on natural wines, Michel Tuz; with experimental film screenings and performances, and installations ( by Chris Auger, Arnaud Bastard, Jean-Christophe Guédon and Jérome Noetinger), around the links between different arts practices and natural wines.
This event took place at PointCulture in Brussels on Saturday 15th February, 2014.
