Caroline Cloutier | Visual Artist
Caroline Cloutier is the Yvonne Bombardier Year 2020’s prize recipiendary. It is within the realm of optical illusions that Caroline wishes to foil its spectator’s perceptions. These shadow, light and reflection tricks tend to make us question our own place in our own material reality : in a sublime zone between marvelousness and nothingness.
How to convert these intangible feelings in video format?
The lucid aesthetics
Courtesy of a steadicam-stabilized and handheld floating camera work – brings us closer to the world that Caroline built through her masterpieces.
A practical effects sprinkled direction of photography highlights transitions between the intangible realm and reality. The controlled superpositions, for their part, transcend the seams of our own material, human perceptions. We wish to startle.
Caroline Cloutier’s artistic vision of her artwork has been well translated in video format thanks to Lucidcubes philosophical and psychedelic approach, this time in a short-documentary format.
