ABOUT

Guillaume Delaperriere, video artist, born in 1974, lives and works in Paris. He earned a degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and joins together in his creations his two modes of artistic expression: music and image.

SOUND & VISION

He composes original scores from video samples. The video loop is used as a creative impulse, applying the rules of musical rhythm to the sampling of images. The time-line of video editing is cut into four beat bars. The narration is articulated like a musical score and allows the viewer to watch the music and listen to the images. 

With a broad variety of sources, from found footage (Drums Unlimited, Mondovision) to documentary (Lisboa Orchestra, Dharavi Orchestra, Opera Duet) to images created in the studio (My Silver Spoon, Little Drama), he captures sound and image simultaneously from a musical standpoint in order to tell hypnotic sound tales.

 

SEE HIS WORKS

His creations are projected onto multi-screen installations as audiovisual performances. Using a real-time interface, he plays his visual music live, offering his audience a fresh new kind of concert. 

The Dharavi Orchestra video (featured for the first time at the 58th Salon d’Art Contemporain de Montrouge, on May 2013 under the form of a four synchronized projections video-installation) will be part of the "Holy Tools!" exhibition during the Paris Design Week 2017.

 

Focused on their repetitive task, these craftsmen perform their daily ritual in a silence punctuated by a call to prayer that from the mosque hovers all over the neighborhood. The earthenware jars, symbolizing an ancestral know-how that withstood the test of time, and the metal barrels, icons of our contemporary world, resonate side by side. The gentle, circular tapping on the jars and the powerful, irregular clanking of the barrels compose an image which is a sensory account of this suspended space-time.Guillaume Delaperriere, about Dharavi Orchestra
