Variations sur un "one-way"

1983, 27:00 minutes, colour


Germain Marsan created a nineteen-piece aluminum structure. This structure, which can be easily dismantled, was brought to the streets to allow people to construct their own structure.
Jean-Guy Michaud collaborated with the sculptor and by introducing video to the creating process, gave a new dimension to these masterpieces.

Germain Marsan a conçu une structure démontable composée de 19 plaques d'aluminium. En opposition avec l'oeuvre d'art immuable et mystique, cette oeuvre peut prendre de multiples formes. Elle prend vie dans la rue, dans les parcs... partout. Le public devient artiste: il crée, démolit puis recrée.
Jean-Guy Michaud a enrichi l'oeuvre d'une dimension supplémentaire, la vidéo. Sa caméra observe la création de formes insoupçonnées et enregistre ainsi l'appropriation par les passants d'un mode d'expression traditionnellement réservé aux spécialistes.
