Through the theme of the bather, Ludivine Large-Bessette plays in this project with the traditional representation of the female nude. By a collaborative approach with four women, it is a process of reappropriation of the female body, where the model becomes full-fledged actor of what she chooses to give to the artist and to the audience. In an atmosphere both seaside and nocturnal, this is the portrait of four women to discover.
Ludivine Large-Bessette is a French Visual Artist. In her multidisciplinary work, which uses both photography, video, digital art, and contemporary dance, the represented body becomes a mirror that is able to unsettle, to question and to move the audience. She interrogates and confronts the viewer with the role of the body in our social interactions and in our contemporary environment.
Her films have been selected in numerous festivals and have been awarded several times (Filmwinter Festival for Expended Media Stuttgart, Instants Video Marseille, FIPA Biarritz, International TanzFilmPlattform Berlin, etc.). Her works have been exhibited among others at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Strasbourg, the Salon de Montrouge, the Friche Belle de Mai in Marseille, the EYE Filmuseum of Amsterdam and at the Aesthetica Art Prize in York where she get a Special Aesthetica Commendation Award.
