Suite à la parution de Mordre suivi de Parenthèse aux Éditions Planète rebelle en 2000, Agence Topo continue de suivre le travail de la vidéaste, poète et artiste des nouvelles technologies Yannick B. Gélinas. Ce titre se compose d’un recueil de poésie et d’une court-métrage. Avec l’amour du verbe et la sensualité en trame de fond, l’artiste nous fait partager sa passion de la vie tout en scandant un appel à la conscience par le geste d’une écriture vibrante. Une poésie exaltée qui raconte l’histoire d’une femme-utopie nommée Liberté.

Le DVD renferme également des poèmes audio interprétés par l’auteure, ainsi que des scènes et des entrevues supplémentaires tournées pour le projet.

The photographers’ collective, FOVEA, is a group of 20 Montreal artists/photographers who operate jointly a collective workspace, darkroom and exhibition room.

Founded in 1998 as a non-profit organization, Fovea had evolved from the Atelier VOX, a collective created in 1985 by the founding members of Vox Populi and having produced, over the years, various photographic exhibits in Montreal and abroad.

Fovea’s continuing mission to exhibit photography in public spaces began in 1995 with a series of photographic street posters shown in Montreal (Mois de la Photo 1995 and 1997) and in Scotland (Fotofeis 1997).

The autumn 2001, Fovea presented Villeneneuve Tour. Highlighted within Montréal’s Mois de la Photo 2001, thirteen artists invested the shops and environment of the Villeneuve Street neighbourhood, in Montréal, with photographic images and installations.

In January and February 2002, work from Fovea appeared in the interior showcases at the gallery of the Moser Arts Gallery, University of St-Francis, in Joliet, Illinois.

During two years (2003-2005), Fovea developed the project So close / Tout près, exhibited in Rouyn-Noranda (Québec) and Montréal.

This DVD proposes a cinematographic approach combining the contemplative gaze we traditionnally fix upon a painting or a photographic still, with the dynamic responsive way we view movies. This ghostly gathering of mutable figures is the first feature-lenght picture by John Oswald, the infamous perpetrator of Plunderphonics. Includes a bonus multilingual soundtrack CD.
