"Springtime" & "Nightfall" by Jeroen Eisinga

Cinéma du réel Festival

FROM 23 MARCH TO 1ER APRIL 2018

Screening of films to be discovered in the rooms of the museum.

“It is often said that artists reveal the unfathomable. Some go further: they test the delicate balance between human beings and the forces of nature, between life and death. The fearless Jeroen Eisinga is one of them. For Springtime, he achieves a performance that is at once grotesque, bewitching and potentially deadly, allowing himself to be covered by a swarm of 200 bees. In her latest installation, the artist brings to life a haunting memory: the vision of a flock of sheep stranded on a frozen lake and gradually covered by snow.

Shot in a desolate Finnish landscape, Nightfall recreates this unreal scene that highlights our voyeuristic tendencies while posing ethical dilemmas. "
- Andréa Picard, artistic director of Cinéma du Réel.
