1. Locomotive - Place des Arts - Espace culturel

    “Locomotive”, the most recent addition to the mosaic screen installation in the foyer of Place des Arts, is a fantastical portrayal of a human machine. The context resembles an elaborate organic dominos game. It begins with a musical impulse and is accompanied by an inexorable advancement of light. Human flesh makes up a patchwork of glittering metallic members - which have the luster of new pistons and bolts - engendering a hybrid mass. Caught in awkward tension, the bodies quiver in suspension, the movement becoming increasingly intense until released by the passing impulse. The carefully synchronized three-dimensional chain reaction of image, sound and light dehumanizes the body while simultaneously makes us smile. Uncomfortable yet intrigued, the eye of the passer cannot turn away from the machine. The complexity of the work lies in its ambiguity of being funny, monstrous, and sensual all at the same time. The totality of this intriguing puzzle is best seen by taking a step back. However, in order to observe and appreciate the detail of the movement, it is equally engaging to advance forward. Each gear, wheel and suture plays its role to tie the whole piece together. For this project, in lieu of creating a work that is intrinsically promotional, Place des Arts has taken the risk of acting as a sponsor and distributor of this purely artistic and cinematic endeavor. Conceived with the intention of using the proposed space - its limitations and constraints – in the pursuit giving life to a custom made creation, “Locomotive” highlights the artistic potential of the mosaic screens in the foyer. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ L’œuvre "Locomotive" qui vient nouvellement habiller la mosaïque d’écran du hall de la Place des Arts est une machine humaine chimérique. Un jeu de domino organique qui se met en marche sous l’impulsion de la musique et l’avancée inexorable de la lumière. Les corps en tension, fébriles et tressaillant s’activent, leur mouvement s’amplifie et s’intensifie jusqu’au relâchement qui suit le passage de la vague. Le patchwork des membres métalliques et luisants comme autant de pistons et de boulons suffisent à engendrer cette machine hybride, sans autre accessoire que la chair. La réaction en chaîne tridimensionnelle –image, son, lumière- minutieusement synchronisée, déshumanise les corps tout en nous faisant esquisser un sourire. Mal à l’aise et intrigué, l’œil du passant ne peut se détourner de cette machine à la fois complexe et drôle, monstrueuse et sensuelle. On se recule pour embrasser du regard la globalité de ce casse tête intrigant, avant de mieux observer les détails de chaque rouage, de chaque mouvement, de chaque suture. On peut en rire; on peut également en frissonner. Pour ce projet la Place Des Arts a pris le risque d’agir à titre de commanditaire et de diffuseur d’une pièce purement artistique. Elle a coordonné et appuyé cette œuvre cinématographique non pas dans le but de véhiculer un message promotionnel mais pour mettre en valeur la mosaïque d’écrans, pour utiliser l’espace proposé -avec ses limites et contraintes- et donner vie à une création qui l’épouse parfaitement. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ Director: Thibaut Duverneix Creation: Thibaut Duverneix & Mathieu Léger Choreographer: Ashlea Watkin Production: Departement Line production: Antler Films Executive producers: Sach Baylin Stern - Thibaut Duverneix Producer: Josh Usheroff Cinematographer: Christophe Collette Makeup: Anicko Bouchard Art Direction: Mathieu Léger Editing - Post Production - Grading: Thibaut Duverneix Music composer: David Drury Music producer: Christian Olsen & David Drury Bass player: Sage Reynolds Talents: Allison Blakley Victoria Diamond Jérémy Fiset Milan Gervais Emily Gualtiery Lael Stellick Andrew Tay Ashlea Watkin 1st camera assistant: Mariane Laporte Grip: Max Robert Electro: Christian Mouzard PA: Mathieu Lefrancois-Gauvreau Intern: Hans Bobanovits DIT: Alexis Vanier Watchout Integration: Thibaut Duverneix & Philippe Larocque Special thanks to: Place des Arts Sophie Labelle Samuel Rigaux Lucie Ladhui Cinepool Cineffects Département Caméra Scapin Staging
