Cedric Marcellin/

Cédric Marcellin, visual artist, videographer approaches image as an emotional experience, his work reflects the desire and the attempt to create a resonance with his interlocutors, between his interlocutors and nature, between interlocutors and their own nature.
This investigative work close to naturalism feeds on themes like "forest of the senses", "cellular memory" or now "Ma". Sometimes they are installations, sometimes films, sometimes films projected on installations. Attempt, temptation, to connect the visible to what we do not understand, the material to what we feel, the conscious to the dreamlike, seize the energy of nature, rub shoulders with it, mimic it, embrace the drive of life that animates beings, to get closer to life to reveal its poetry, attempt, attempt and it begins again. ”
