PIERRE LEGUILLON (The Promise of the Screen, an "à la carte" franchise)

25.06.2015 to 20.09.2015
Created by Pierre Leguillon, La Promesse de l’écran (The Promise of the Screen) is a mobile installation that is as much the screening of a film as a performance. Starting with a preliminary definition—a 4/3 screen opening on a 16/9 bar—the project has been adapted to different forms since 2007 and experienced in a wide range of venues, making it possible to replay over and over the screening situation and its convivial collective character in a specific here and now. 

La Promesse de l’écran, an à la carte franchise, has been set up at the Villa du Parc for a year, giving one and all the opportunity to schedule a screening from the catalogue of Promises produced by Leguillon and bring together the audience that will take part in the event. Screenings can be devoted to typical aspects of the cinema, including credits, posters, recurring motifs, etc., or to ways of viewing film history through the representation of another medium, whether poetry, architecture, photography, or other. A Promesse est également spécialement dédiée aux enfants.
