A series of interviews with artists, an art student and an art school director, which implicitly defines Céline Ahond's own artistic practice.
The distinctive practice of Céline Ahond (born 1979 in Clermont-Ferrand, lives and works in Montreuil) finds expression in art venues, books
and public spaces
—in the form of collective experiences. She drew critical attention in the early 2000s with performance-lectures
s involving narratives
of all kinds, printed and projected images, video systems
and presentations of objects. She followed up with “film performances” with evocative titles like You See What I Mean?
, What Film Are We Living in?
and Playing at Really Pretending
. On the fine line between documentary
and zany fiction, these are real-fake reconstructions whose role-playing blurs identities and the relationship between the real and the imaginary. Ahond is a past master in constructing situations that open up territories for action, speaking out and inventing a specific language; and in doing so she explores the way “the encounter generates art”.
