Les Champs Libres & les Tombées de la Nuit present
Vitrine en Cours
Installation and film screening in public space
The performance exhibitions of Christophe Raclet and Nicolas David only use slides and 8 and 16 mm film in a fantastic inventive and whirling delight. A unique and ephemeral urban kaleidoscope, from the Maison de la Consommation et de l’Environnement.

Voluntarily backtracking from our pixel and digital photography-saturated world, Rennes-based Christophe Raclet and Nicolas David delve into their collection of slides, 8 and 16 mm films and drawings to ease our digitally-bombarded eyes and play with the idea of indoors/outdoors by using the architecture of a building we see every day, La Maison de la Consommation et de l’Environment, and its surrounding architecture, transforming it into an urban kaleidoscope. In this installation/exhibition/performance, the analogue images mixed and projected live give birth to stories and tableaus, in a collision of vignettes, scratches, grains and textures. For the occasion, the projectionists of Vitrine en Cours are accompanied by a musician (Léo Prud’homme) and dancer (Dominique Godderis-Chouzenoux), inviting you on a wonderful imaginary journey.


Vitrine en Cours was founded in Rennes in 2003 after the meeting of a film projectionist, photographer and graphic artist. Ever since, the collective has been displaying images, decorating and lighting up buildings, festivals, and music and dance shows. Nicolas David and Christophe Raclet work exclusively with analogue images and film media (slides, 8 and 16 mm film, drawings, etc.), mixing them live from their four hundred loops of images, documentary films and thousands of slides. This contemplative performance, enhanced by the ballet of the artists’ movements behind their machine, transforms space and time with these unique visual compositions marked by the inimitable traces of time. The surprising, quirky, psychedelic, inventive, mind-spinning, unrestrained and touching work of Vitrine en Cours creates a unique ephemeral world in their urban kaleidoscope. From kalos (beautiful), eidos (that which is seen) and skopein (to look).
