Les yeux dans les yeux
- Without dialogue
Distribution: Chantal DuPont
Music: Robert Marcel Lepage
Producer: Chantal DuPont
Categories :FIFA Experimental
A series of self-portraits, in which the artist places objects over her eyes to undermiine the viewer's gaze. Hiding her eyes and replacing them with objects are performative gestures that continue the poetic and playful approach last seen in her video Visages.
Born in Montreal, Chantal DuPont studied at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal and Concordia University, where she obtained her master’s degree in visual arts in 1969. She is associate professor at UQAM’s École des arts visuels et médiatiques, where she taught from 1985 to 2008, and a member of Hexagram/UQAM and the Centre Interuniversitaire d’Arts Médiatiques CIAM. Since 1996, the content of her videos and installations has focused on family and cultural identity, self-representation, the vulnerability of the body and memory. She is interested in the diverse narrative forms made possible by digital approaches to the transition between documentary and fiction.
