A programme of experimental films and video art around the body for all ages, with artworks of Lenka Clayton & James Price, Joël Bartoloméo, Pierrick Sorin, Sue Murad, Rebecca Ann Hobbs, Kate Walker, Franz Höfner, Anna Vasof and Ana Prvacki. The programme is presented within the exhibition Corps, presented between March 9th and June 1st, 2024 in Périgueux, France.

The programme presents films on the body, from its limits to its powers, but also its transformations and mystery, with a selection of artists’ videos and experimental films made between 1988 and now. With dancehall, hula hoop, a string quartet, body machinery, physically active communities together, but also not always easy awakenings.

The programme is curated by Marie-Pierre Bonniol on an invitation of Pierre Ouzeau and Agence culturelle Dordogne-Périgord. This program was accompanied by the hosting of several groups and classes from April 9 to 11, 2023.
