CONCERT FOR 2 KOR(E)AS BY DAPHNÉ LE SERGENT

CONCERT FOR 2 KOR(E)AS is a cine-concert in which two kora musicians interpret the traditional Korean song "Arirang". The images take the viewer on a journey from the East to the West, from the frozen shores of the Yellow Sea to the hot sands of the ancient Malian empire Manden. Born in Korea and adopted in France, the artist was inspired by blues music and the notion of diaspora over the course of this project. But the real journey here is created by the musicians, by the two koras which modulate the "Arirang" and strangely pick up the melismatic intonations of the Korean voices.

Daphné Le Sergent is an artist and photographer who undertakes artistic and theoretical investigations into notions of separation and boundaries. Whether through various arrangements (photo/video polyptychs) or by creating tension between different zones of an image (in photographs and drawings), her work creates dissociations in the direct perception of visuals to bring forth scissions, cracks, in the intimate space of the gaze.
