Born in 1987, Geörgette Power lives and works in Bordeaux. He is a graduate of the beaux-arts of this city in 2010. The practice of the video is decisive in his work, this medium having led him to ask the question of the interplay - between the image and the off-field, the real and the fiction - variations of passages in which, as shown by the choice of a pseudonym, he settles.
Artistic project : Specific Production
The videos produced for the Highway code test have a very peculiar style. The singular vocabulary of the rules of circulation is staged in a raw way. These simulations, made to learn to future drivers how to identify and decipher immutable signs, oddly seem to be frozen for eternity. However, the huge playground deployed by the roads is constantly changing. The car appeared long before specific ways were dedicated to it. During the 20th century, the network of tar was gradually developed over the whole surface of the globe. In a near future, the image of vehicles driving without drivers, but also without passengers, is going to become banal. This video invites you to explore this new turning point.
