Presented as part of the exhibition Magnetic Sequences, co organized by Artexte and Vidéographe, this program highlights the often hypnotic nature of video art from the 1970s. Binamé and Boyer exploit the pure abstraction of the video signal through feedback in crazy and fragile forms. Like Boyer with his boyétizeur, Razutis develops his own tools – synthesizer and optical printer – to create film/video hybrids. He also offers us, in a way similar to that of Rahn, a delirium of colors that transcend reality. Finally, Martin indulges in a slow degradation of the image by re-recording, dissolving a dancer into pure disembodied movement.
