Screening «Black Bivouac»

Screening «Black Bivouac #9» followed by a talk with Sylvain Grout, Yann Mazéas & Arnaud Deshayes organized by CNAP (Centre nationale des arts plastiques)

At Silencio Des Prés, 22 rue Guillaume Apollinaire


As part of Paris Internationale and Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP) exhibition program entitled MAINTENANT! (NOW!), discover artists duo Grout/Mazéas project “Black Bivouac #9” - on view at the Silencio des Près, Friday 20th !

The screening will be followed by a talk with the artists and Arnaud Deshayes.

This project has benefited CNAP’s support in 2022. Since the late 1990s, Grout/Mazéas have co-signed a series of works and exhibitions in which what’s fake and what’s real rub shoulders, test each other and collide.
Black Bivouac #9, from the series of short films of the same name, depicts the making of smuggled whisky. In the fumes of a still, like the Bouvard and Pécuchet of contemporary art, the two artists have taken on the role of nocturnal distillers, to the sound of a laborious and ethereal banjo. The gestures are slow and sometimes clumsy, a series of almost didactic sequences that could feature in an experimental tutorial.
