Exploring the Permanent Collection and the Pierrick Sorin Exhibition: Le Balai mécanique

Videographer and director Pierrick Sorin, in his videos inspired by burlesque cinema and the poetic worlds of Georges Méliès and Jacques Tati, embodies a character who humorously and ironically questions the meaning of our everyday life. Starting in 1995, he invented "optical theaters" in which a virtual hologram - his miniature double - performs in comical scenes within a crafted set, consisting of both real and fictional objects. 
At the National Fernand Léger Museum, Pierrick Sorin creates an immersive video artwork, playfully involving the viewers while paying homage to the modernity and aesthetic inventiveness of Fernand Léger's iconic film, 'Ballet mécanique' (1925), a masterpiece of cinematic avant-garde. On display until January 29th, 2024. For more information

During the summer, the mediation team offers creative workshop tours centered around common themes in Fernand Léger and Pierrick Sorin's works: decor, costume-disguise, machinery, animation (including gif creation), and the theme of divers.
