ILLUMINATING THE SHADOWS (DIONYSUS PROJECT)
Maison Jean Vilar, Avignon
October 17, 2015
LATEST CREATION : THE DIONYSUS PROJECTA PROJECT CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT
The Dionysus project is an evolving mural video projection,
based on the mythology surrounding Dionysus and the symbolism of Wine and the vine.
Each phase of the project consists of a re-creation of a new version,
expanding upon the original subject in function of the specific demands of an event and adapted to each new space,
depending on its architectural design, its history, its function etc..
– The first phase SAP BLOOD AND WINE, created for the Center for Contemporary Art of Istres,
involved creating a narrative surrounding the Archeology Museum of Istres’s collection,
and resulted in a videomapping of the museum’s buildings centered around the courtyard (September 2015).
– The second phase, ILLUMINATING THE SHADOWS, for the Art Walk in Avignon,
focused on Dionysus’ youth and the practive of learning magic in caves,
for a mural projection in the courtyard of the Maison Jean Vilar, Avignon (october 2015).
