We Cannot Exhibit It

The Videos of Pierre-Yves Clouin

Presented in Association with Frameline

From bursts of perspective trickery to homoerotic celebrations of the male body and philosophical musings on public versus private, the award-winning videos of Pierre-Yves Clouin never cease to delight. His witty examinations of the quotidian elements of life bring transcendental revelations combined with laughter. “Alone in front of the camera, and without a word, I spy on myself in the monitor during the action. I am double: seer and seen. As if freedom from surveillance meant inventing, within surveillance itself, an illusion that subverts the watching eye.” (P-YC)) We’ll screen My Levitating Butt and I’ve Got Mouths All Over, as well as the more recent Thé au Riz (RiceTea/ Theory), Flying Sculpture, Strong Enough, and US premieres of new work.
