Don’t Work (1968 – 2018)

Director: César Vayssié
Cast: Elsa Michaud, Gabriel Gauthier
France, 2018, 88’, color
French with Turkish, English subtitle

César Vayssié has recorded the lives of Elsa Michaud and Gabriel Gauthier for a year. As they study Fine Arts in Paris, they experience a love relationship during troubled times, overwhelmed by visuals. Fifty years after the events of May 1968, a globalised violence is even more visible, digital era is now confronted to outlines of stories and the insignificance of gestures. To a background of Elsa and Gabriel’s visuals and images from the internet, with the music of Avia x Orly, this documentary-experiment-journal is the reflection of an unsettled era, a too fast transformation.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
