Collective Screening # 1
Perrine Gamot & Jivko Darakchiev Films, photos or multimedia installations, the work of Jivko Darakchiev and Perrine Gamot focuses on the relationship between people and their environment. Each project is an opportunity for new cinematographic experiments that also seek echoes in plastic forms. They engage in new forms of storytelling to explore issues that are dear to them: the mutability of our everyday environments and objects, their evolving “uses” and the links between individual and collective heritage.
