La Vie Héroïque de B.S. : Un opéra en 3 actes
In this video-opera, Hoël Duret stages the investigation of a fictional character named B.S., a whimsical designer and clumsy heir to the rational principles of modernity. Conqueror, he accepts an ultimate challenge: to redesign the hen’s egg.
The sixties aesthetic oscillates between DIY and design, teeming with references to post-war industrial creations, and already heralds the collapse of the hero’s fascinated modernist thinking. The three acts were filmed in as many exhibitions designed as film sets (Frac Pays de la Loire, Mosquito Coast Factory and Zoo Galerie).
Thursday 2 June at 6.45pm: Screening and meeting with the artist.
Born in 1988 in Nantes, Hoël Duret lives and works between Rennes and Paris. He graduated from ESBA-Nantes.
