Ludivine Large-Bessette


  • Oeuvre - Ludivine Large-Bessette
    Les images folliculaires - 2022 - mixed media installation, Centre d'art contemporain l'Espace Croisé, Roubaix

Working at the intersection of video, photography and contemporary dance, she uses the body as object and motif to capture our desires for power and our limits (artificial, physical and normative). In this way, cinematographic and choreographic techniques present themselves to her as a gateway to new writing and the creation of hybrid stories. Historical and popular images, from which she often draws inspiration, support the construction of contemporary allegories that challenge the position of the public and our relationship to progress and strategies of power.

Her work has been exhibited in contemporary art (Salon de Montrouge, Aesthetica Art Prize York, La Nuit Blanche Paris, Centre des arts d’Enghien-les-Bains, Maison des Arts de Malakoff, Centre d’art contemporain Espace Croisé de Roubaix), live art (Le Gymnase CDCN Roubaix, le Carreau du Temple Paris, les Subs Lyon) and film and photography festivals (Addis Foto Fest, Filmwinter Festival for Expended Media Stuttgart, Instants Vidéo Marseille, Internationale TanzFilmPlattform Berlin, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin).
