provides insight into the research and experiments Antonin De Bemels
has been elaborating for more than a decade. Video, installation and
scenography are just some of the artistic media he employs.

The main subject in all these works is the body, and more
particularly the dancing body or rather its spatial and temporal
recomposition, obtained through various editing and processing methods.

Thus, overlappings, collisions, repetitions, backward and forward
motions, still images, residual images, as well as syncopated and
elliptical editing concur to hinder, repress and condition movement’s
natural fluidity.

This balance of power gives rise to fragmented bodies that
struggle between the intervals and cuts. Bodies move restlessly, merge,
give life to new hybrid creatures and symbolic figures such as the
double, the marionette and the androgyne and conjure up mythological
references such as Narcissus and Lilith.

Includes: Scrub solos series, Peau Pierre, Il s’agit, Au quart de tour, Light body corpuscles

Extras: originals super-8 rushes, Les entrailles de Narcisse (extracts from the performance), Lilith (video installation).
Includes a 24-page trilingual booklet (dutch/english/french)

This DVD production has received the support of the
Ministry of the French-speaking community of Belgium –
Directorate-General for Culture - Visual Arts department, the
Brigittines and Quoi d’autre asbl.
