L’envers des corps
2018 — 16′55″ — HD
This film was created to accompany the exhibition “D’un château à l’autre”, held at the Palais de Compiègne from 18 April to 10 September 2018.
The film is a photographic work in which the body of the model is seen superimposed upon the sumptuous décor of the apartments of the Palais. It is also a film created in corridors of the Palais that remain inaccessible to the public.
Beyond the décor, the film is also an invitation to join the artist in his studio. The soundtrack was put together from recordings of working sessions with models, during which François Rouan displayed images of the film, which was at the time a work in progress.
