The poetic smoke sculptures of the collective (LA)HORDE in “Cloud Chasers”
The French collective of directors, (LA)HORDE unveils its new smoky short film “Cloud Chasers”, 7th part of the initiative launched by Lafayette Anticipation, “Mutant Stage”.
From the renovation work in the Lafayette Anticipation building, the Galeries Lafayette fundation that supports young contemporary artists, was born the idea of an artistic project to make to place useful way before its reopening. Named Mutant Stage, the initiative celebrates all the artistic mutations through conceptual short movies from 2’30 to 4’ in which dance, architecture and cinema blend together to turn each episode into an original and singular creation.
On the occasion of this 7th part, it’s the collective (LA)HORDE composed of three talented French directors, Marine Brutti, Jonathan Debrouwer and Arthur Harel, that gives its own interpretation. Since they started off in 2011, their work is focused on video, performance and choregraphic installation. They now unveil Cloud Chasers, a poetic video set to music by the electronic artist OK Lou in which smoke volutes evolve with dance, like a representation of the undefined contours of the place and its variety of possibilities.
