Le temps à l’oeuvre, f(r)iction by Marc Mercier
“An history of video art can only be written in the same “bad hat” spirit particular to this artistic adventure among the Fluxus movement, in the beginning of the sixties. A book like that had to be a poetic act. Marc Mercier’s work do not only tell us the story of the biggest video art festival in South of France, Les Instants Vidéo, which is celebrating this year its 20th birthday, and that is now settled in Marseille. He goes beyond the limits and invite us to think the century. He questions modernity, technologies, memory, poetry, politics, art, History, friendship…. A true poetic war machine. An history that is told the way we would tell moments of a burning life. A travel diary that invites us to explore poetronic territories in Croatia, in Argentina, in Morocco, in France, in jail or in the desert…”, wrote the poet Manuel Estrella in 2006. / Text by Marc MERCIER / Photographies and graphism : Giney AYME / 20 € + 5 € de port
