Collectif_Fact_ Suspension of Disbelief_ Tenderpixel_ London_ Dec

Collectif_fact is the collaborative name of artist duo Annelore Schneider and Claude Piguet. Their mainly video based projects deconstruct cinematic codes while using a complex mesh of references: fragments of dialogues, citations and music extracts, with a multitude of allusion to cinema classics. These collages of familiar images tap into our desire to be gripped and even deceived by images and stories, examining interaction and society under a new light. At a Loss for Words, a new video by collectif_fact supported by the SCF, dissects two characters’ relationship to each other with the unusual landscape of Dungeness. The protagonists of this film, a couple breaking up, exhaust a variety of communication strategies, only to eventually end up even further apart.
