Parabole 1

1989, 11:20 minutes, colour, French


Parabole 1 leads us straight to the essence of the words uttered by painter Roméo Savoie when it abruptly leads us elsewhere. We are left with a sort of sensitive fiction on painting. The painter's words usually serve as a backdrop. They in fact become a distinct work. The paintings and the words combine to form a stylish portrait of the artist.

Parabole 1 nous conduit directement au coeur de la parole du peintre Roméo Savoie, pour aussitôt nous en détourner. Le spectateur en retient une sorte de fiction sensible sur la peinture. La parole du peintre, habituellement placée à l'ombre des tabeaux, devient ici une oeuvre en soi.
