LORE RINSOZ

Cinéaste documentariste de formation, j’ai parfois recourt à l'installation comme point de rencontre entre l’image, travail théorique, et art plastique. Les mêmes questionnements qui m'ont poussée à étudier les relations internationales et le droit humanitaire, motivent et nourrissent aujourd’hui mon engagement artistique. Attachée à la démarche du courant de l’Arte Povera, notamment pour son usage de matériaux primaires (bois, pierre, végétaux, etc. ), l’installation est pour moi un outil narratif d’expériences et d’immersions, un levier de rencontres et de discussions.

Le Collectif dandelion est un terrain fascinant d’utopies et une source infinie d’imagination. Entre réflexion et production, théorie et terrain, investissement individuel et collectif, dans un esprit de participation, échange, apprentissage et transgression, le travail en collectif est pour moi un chantier nécessaire qui nourrit constamment le reste !
