Finallly,The process leading to the making of the film-installation Les Avatars de Vénus goes back thirty years to the thousands of images I began picking up - from news stands, bookshops, libraries, museums, flea markets as I travelled around the world. Finallly, I collected a giant image-bank of different incarnations of Venus spreading across time and space, coming from all continents, all civilizations, all epochs. -  Jean-Jacques Lebel

Lebel's interest in the figure of Venus stems from his work as a
sculptor for the installation "Reliquaire pour un culte de Venus",
which he has revisited again and again for the last ten years. It
meanwhile consists of over 2,000 single parts: painting, collages,
photographs, and texts. Summarized in twelve parts, the film shows
which archetypes have emerged in the course of history, above and
beyond the cultural and temporal borders.

Includes:

- Les Avatars de Vénus (2007, video, 40’)
- Le Cow-boy et l’Indien (Alain Fleischer, 1993, video, 58’)
- Monument à Félix Guattari (François Pain, 1994, video, 90’)
- Le Visiteur (Alain Fleischer, 1998, video, 45’)
