David Legrand est un agitateur. Depuis 20 ans il bouscule les idées et les pratiques collectives, perturbe les écoles et les règles trop établies, réactive la fraicheur et les pratiques insurrectionnelles dans la tradition des avant-gardes. Son engagement physique est total, que ce soit comme acteur inspiré de performances actionnelles ou instigateur d’expérimentations filmiques hors-champ. Il a démarré ses activités d’artistes avec Fabrice Cotinat et Henrique Martins-Duarte au sein de leur galerie du cartable, mais a depuis travaillé frénétiquement avec de nombreux artistes singuliers, tels Rainier Lericolais, Michel Aubry, Philippe Zunino, Michel Giroud, Chus Martinez, Joseph Morder, Marie Losier, ou Boris Lehman, devenu vieux complice de ce dernier. Il s’est toujours passionné pour l’engagement exigeant dans des travaux et contextes hors normes, que ce soit avec la galerie portée et interventionniste du cartable, les épiques dialogues fictifs des indéboulonnables de l’art, dans les programmes d’expérimentation des médias alternatifs et tactiques, tel le récent plateau Videa Performing Art ou encore dans la toute nouvelle Hack School « une école do it yourself » dédiée aux études manquantes et à la création en commun, qu’il coordonne pour l’association Bandits-Mages… Ewen Chardronnet

Jean-Gabriel Périot was born in 1974. Back in 1998, within the short movies and creation department of French TV channel Canal Plus, then as a documentary editor for French TV channels Arte and France 3, he gained experience in documentary editing. He worked in parallel with many choreographers and on the videography of some exhibitions at the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris, before engaging in 2000 in his own first projects. He often builds his films from pre-existing archives ; photos, films, Internet files… He works out and reflects on the polymorphous status of violence within our societies. Everything goes on through the power of images, no speech, no comments : just a cinema-reflection. Through his films, Jean-Gabriel Périot focuses on image manipulation: fond of syncopated edition, he abandons aestheticism in favour of the – necessarily political – speech , he retrieves from the image in order to contest the space. He loves to create confusion juggling with the cinema genres (documentary experimental fiction animation), he often pops up where he is not expected. His films have been selected and rewarded in festivals worldwide.
