De peindre, mes os sont devenus poussière

Laetitia Demessence

Canada | 2023 | 6 min
This film takes its inspiration from the white colour that is present throughout the oeuvre of Jean Paul Riopelle – the white of mourning, snow and geese, the white of the imprint of objects placed on a canvas before being spray painted as a stencil. This colour, sometimes used to contrast with the others, sometimes covering an entire canvas, seems to point to a void in which the man who suffers from osteoporosis is falling. Like a sigh of the creative gesture seeking to fill an absence.
