le monde après la pluie

EVA MEDIN

Video installation

Production CHRONIQUES 2020

Le monde après la pluie is an initiatory tale, a choreographic and video fable inspired by both a science fiction book by Philippe Curval and a painting by Max Ernst.

Through this immersive installation, the public follows a wandering hybrid entity, a mix of human, robot, mineral and plant. His melancholic stride and the slow transformation of his being, make him a symbolic facilitator to envision interdependent relationships between the living and the non-living, the visible and the invisible…

Presented as a surrealist epic, Le monde après la pluie provides the experience of a time suspended between past and future, between the material and the immaterial, a chance to consider other relationships with the world and the living and non-living which constitute it. What if accepting other life forms is the real odyssey of our time?

Artist

Eva Medin (FRA)

Eva Medin is a French artist born in 1988 in Rio de Janeiro. She studied scenography at the Beaux Arts of Monaco, where she developed a style linked to choreographic movement and worked with choreographers such as the Monte-Carlo Ballet and Mathilde Monnier. She then graduated from the Decorative Arts school of Paris where she delved deeper into this legacy of the body using videography.

Eva Medin has developed a multidisciplinary vocabulary, a mix of immersive installations, performances, sculptures and videos. A visual artist and videographer, her working method brings together scenography, film making and anticipatory literature, with one central question: how can fiction enable us to reappropriate our future?
