Descripción / Sinopsis

Dérive Veneziane is about Venice.

Cities are sometimes represented by strong stereotypes or clichés.           

Dérive Veneziane tries to show another side of the city, the hidden, the unknown, the mysterious.

Through a journey based on the Situationists’ dérive, by night and from a boat …

Dérive Veneziane brings notions of darkness, loneliness, discovery, loss, intrigue and phantasmagoria.


Dérives pour Venice.

Drifting by night through Venice, on water.

Encountering the unexpected and the unanticipated.

A series of resulting tableaux precipitate a new

awareness of this urban environment as it is transformed

by darkness. Removing all predictable daytime paths,

this wandering mise-en-scène gives rise to a new awareness.

Exploring the psychogeography first defined by Guy Debord,

this journey seeks to modulate reality by creating a disorientating

undertow and a keen awareness of terroir.

Venice by night is stimulating, along the lines of what Honoré

de Balzac described as flânerie or 'the gastronomy of the eye'.
