• "Vacance" by Romain Kronenberg

A selection of films by Romain Kronenberg

France

A guitar, a camera, light. The work of the artist Romain Kronenberg is a combination which seems to extract itself from the world. His eruption on the French art scene dates back to 2005 with a series of video performances filmed at the Cartier Foundation and then filmed at the Palais de Tokyo. After this comes a series of videos all revealing a particular sense of distancing which places working drawing at the centre of his aesthetics. Romain Kronenberg’s work reveals a certain nostalgic feeling both of the moment seized and of the ‘elsewhere’. He tests the depths of instants of absence in an attempt to better understand their meaning. This programme has been put together specially for the Seconde Nature festival.
