DES 30 GLORIEUSES AUX 40 VOLEURS – JOURNAL MOUVEMENTÉ - YV DYMEN

Using 40 years' worth of my own materials: filmic (photochemical / analog / digital); photographic (photochemical / digital); plastic (drawing / painting / sculpture), I endeavor a sensory chronicle dating from the "Height of the 2nd Millenium" to the "Low of the 3rd".

Its premise deals with the overlap... of hours, days, centuries, societies, technologies, reference points... in which elements cover each other, interweave, superimpose, entwine, reemerge, evolve, construct, deconstruct. Techniques as well as practices, references and influences, failures, thresholds, current events, joys, sorrows, desires, accelerations, returns, standstills, doubts, utopias, lies...

The aim is to synthesize this material, these "fades", these dubitable "accelerations": industrial, technical, technological, through a "lived-image". I work toward a sort of "narrative in motion" or "narrative-image" which renders visible, ultimately and paradoxically, the tread of time, if not the tread of humanity (Sisyphus' neurosis multiplied to infinity).
