CINEMA IN TRANSIT: JEAN-CHRISTOPHE ROYOUX
Jean-Christophe Royoux (FR, 1961) obtained a degree in art history and theory from the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris. Since 1997 he is a professor of Culture at the Ecole Régionale des Beaux-arts in Cherbourg. Since the beginning of the 1990s he explores the in-between areas between cinema and visual art as an art critic and curator. This has resulted in numerous essays and artist monographs, on the likes of Marcel Broodthaers, Stan Douglas and Pierre Huyghe, as well as exhibitions, such as Multipistes (2005), focusing on a number of young French artists presenting post-cinematographic forms in their work, deconstructions or alterations of the familiar notions of projection and identification. Royoux sees this "Cinéma d’Exposition" mainly as a catalyst for new narrative modalities. As intermediary forms, between the artist and the spectator, they generate an active reading and experience of the thinking and looking process.
