Détective Animé@ Opening in two weeks

OÙ AI-JE DÉJÀ VU CELA ? Vernissage/Exhibition opening: Monday, November 5, 6 pm at the MAI café

Nightime window projections
November 4 to 10, 2012
6 pm to 11pm

Installation vidéographique projetée sur les fenêtres du MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), Où ai-je déjà vu cela ? sollicite par sa poésie urbaine les passants de la rue Jeanne-Mance à Montréal. Conçu à partir de la technique du cinéma d'animation, ce triptyque vidéographique puise son inspiration dans les miniatures persanes anciennes ainsi que dans le Montréal contemporain. Recherchant la similarité entre le passé et le présent, la trame narrative estompe les notions du temps et du lieu.

L’œuvre de Parissa Mohit amalgame la représentation picturale médiévale aux images de Montréalais croquées sur le vif. Création gigogne - histoire qui en cache une autre - Où ai-je déjà vu cela ? insuffle un sens épique à ces tranches de vie montréalaises. Danse au tam-tam, bataille médiévale au Mont-royal et moments intimes dans les parcs de Montréal, autant de scènes du quotidien qui se superposent aux légendes persanes.

A video installation projected onto the windows of the MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), Où ai-je déjà vu cela ? (Where have I seen this before?) attracts the attention of passers-by on Jean-Mance street in Montreal with its urban poetry. Conceived using animated film techniques, this video triptych draws its inspiration from ancient persian minatures, as well as from contemporary Montreal. Creating a similarity between past and present, the narrative erases the concepts of time and space. 

Parissa Mohit joins medieval pictorial representation with images of montrealers sketched from real life. A new work with a Russian doll construction - each stroy conceals another - Où ai-je déjà vu cela ? Breathes a sense of epic into these slices of Montreal life. A Tam-Tam dance, a medieval battle on Mount-Royal, and an intimate moment in a park are some of the scenes of everyday life superimposed on Persian legends.

Détective Animé @ Cours écrire ton court


A script I was working on during the summer was selected to be a part of the finalists of Cours Écrire ton Court, a contest organized by SODEC

''Une visite'' is the story of a 5-year-old girl who is supposed to spend the day with her aunt. She believes she doesn't receive the attention she deserves and she decides to disappear. 




Détective Animé is really looking forward to developing this script during the workshops held during the months of October and November. Here are a few visual tests to illustrate the first version of the script.
