The Poetics of Anxiety and Melancholia
Selected by David Gryn, Director and Founder of Artprojx.
Moving Stories strings together scenes of flying passenger airplanes and re-recorded audio. In this short study of the dramatic and narrative power of image and sound, Provost once again proves to be a talented manipulator of the cinematic language and reaches, through minimal means, a strongly emotionally loaded result. With a limited number of images, an absorbing soundtrack and a suggestive story line, the artist tries to stimulate the viewers' imagination to the maximum.
