Director Statement

Pierre Ajavon is a visual artist, composer, musician, and a sociologist.
After sociology studies focused on psychedelic culture, he embarked on a long musical journey as a composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist.
He moved into video art when he saw the possibility of bringing the sound and moving image together.
He specialized in researching sound visualizing via Pop imagery.
Mixing electronic music, psychedelic rock and field recording for his musical research.
Intending to “film sound” and transform it into pictures, his approach strive to hinge his musical thought on postmodern visual aesthetics which draw its references both on psychoanalysis (dream and subconscious) and the symbolist, surrealist and pop-art artistic movements.
He produced many experimental short films which he filmed, edited, and designed the music production.
Since 2015, He expanded his research by using video frames to create digital works on aluminium & plexiglas.
Indeed, He redefined the dialogue between sound and moving pictures by developing a triangulation incorporating a still image.
Pierre Ajavon speaks his language of sounds and images that is understood without translation into words.
He lives in Paris and exhibits internationally.
