Interview with Alain Fleischer

Artist, filmmaker, photographer and writer, founder and director ot the Fresnoy-Studio national des arts contemporain, Alain Fleischer has explored in multiple ways, throughout his long career, the relationships between the still and the moving image. In this interview, he discusses the installation presented in the exhibition, La Vague gelée (1997), with its ambiguous status between stillness and movement, positive and negative, and with its way of dealing with a motif that has historically often been associated with the question of the passing of time: the incessant movement of the waves.
