Artist' Talk with Moïa Jobin-Paré

September 4th, 2019


The NFB, in partnership with Les Sommets du cinéma d’animation, is pleased to invite you to an artists’ talk by Moïa Jobin-Paré.

To create No objects, emerging experimental filmmaker Moïa Jobin-Paré developed a truly unique animation technique. Her film combines artisanal methods with digital and analog technologies to radically transfigure visual expression. Texture, repetition, vibration, oscillation, noise: the image becomes something that can be heard. Scratched photographs are used to compose and recompose a horde of forms, picked out with extreme patience. Through the choreography of repetitive toil, her silhouettes appear carved right into the surfaces. No objects is the work that’s decidedly hands-on, the interplay of matter and gesture. Everything is a question of handling and posture: the energy deployed transforms bodies into light, as moving images speak for themselves and sound turns into motion. An exploration both bracing and contemplative of the tactile world.

During the masterclass, Moïa Jobin-Paré will discuss her technique and creative process as well as the challenges involved with making an experimental work.
