Director Statement

Born in 66' in Paris, Pierre Ajavon is a visual artist, composer & musician.
He lives in Paris (France) and exhibits internationally.
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.
Pierre Ajavon 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 surrealist, psychedelia and pop-art artistic movements.
Pierre Ajavon produced many experimental short films which he filmed, edited, and designed the music production, widely distributed internationally (Royal Scottish Academy-Edinburgh, Madatac-Madrid, Museum of Modern Art-Rio de Janeiro, Video Art Forum-Saudi Arabia...).
He speaks his language of sounds and images that is understood without translation into words.
In a synesthesical approach, pictures, colors and sound showed what the aesthetic perception could create.
The last 5 years he has participated in many art exhibitions and festivals throughout Europe, America & Asia.
“Creating sound scenery connected to filmed aesthetics is the cornerstone of my artistic research”
