Robin Dupuis
From September 8th 2000 to October 14th 2000
Captive

"Captive" is the latest digital video installation by Robin Dupuis. It explores the language and structure of the image-movement and the rhythmic displacement of sound from the point of view of collision.

"Captive" is a video study of the collision between the body and a prefabricated image-sound language. The digital video installation places the captive body inside a deconstruction of the language codes of linear imaging. The work reappropriates and recontextualises the image-movement language that contemporary viewers have acquired in the course of history. "Captive" explores the collision between seduction — identification through the body and the voice — and repulsion by saturating, repeating and shifting the audio-visual signal. A collision between the body and the tools we have created to interpret it...

Video performance by members of Perte de signal, October 14, 2000 in the context of PARAZONE, a series of events celebrating the 100th issue of Parachute at Optica.

A founding member of the media arts collective Perte de Signal, Robin Dupuis holds a B.F.A. from Concordia University (1997). His work focuses on an aesthetics of collision, a mechanical assemblage of time and space continuities within the image-sound movement. His tapes have been presented in several international events such as "Impakt 99" in The Netherlands, "LA Freewaves", 00 in the United States, "D>art" 99 and 00 in Australia, the Fourth Split International Festival of New Cinema in Croatia and the 27th Festival international du nouveau cinéma et des nouveaux médias à Montréal. His most recent production, Opuscules: Op.1 (2000), was premiered at the sixth edition of Media City, the Windsor International Festival of Experimental Cinema.
