Boris Labbé
France 2011 / 10′

The repeating rhythms and cycles have a hypnotic quality and encourage the viewer’s eye to wander playfully and explore different figures. The piece was built with 285 watercolours, letting the drawing deform itself gradually from improvised movements. The animated figures develop a complex symmetric abstraction, and then return to the minimalist aesthetic of the initial white.
