During the Festival Les Weekends du ROY on 18 September 2016, Luc Andrié will present his video performance DIMANCHE. He will be present at the Joan Ayrton exhibition in the espace dAM with his computer and a large flatscreen, spending at least two hours (more if possible) pumping out video clips that he has created over recent years, evoking colour. This “DJ” work will be “invented” on the spot, reflecting changing parameters that include the spirit of the place, the DJ’s emotional state, the “visual sound” of the day, the state of the world at that moment in time, the presence of people at this exhibition venue, what is happening out in the street, and so on. The length of this performance is key to the event. Spectators can come and go as they please.
