Since the early 1990s, Hugues Reip (born in 1964) develops a prolix work crossed by an «archeomodernist» imaginary. His videos, sculptures, elementary installations and carvings form dreamy paintings sometimes childish, sometimes rock n’roll. Certain technical and formal processes inherited from the origins of cinema (Méliès, Keaton) and the artistic avant-garde of the twentieth century (Fischinger, Kandinsky) mixed with tinkered artifices give birth to his filmic experiments, often of very short duration
