When Graphism Meets Words

PRESENTED ON DEC 02, 2015
IN NANTES @ VOL 11

Architect and artist Ciancio Alexandre collects forgiven clichés with no known history and transforms them into brand new collages. More than a graphic work, he tries to evoke and create new stories, new emotions. 

After a 20x20 in December 2013 about the dangers of creative ideas ( http://www.pechakucha.org/users/francis-mizio ) the humorous novelist, columnist and teacher in communication Francis Mizio has embarking on a perilous exercise : improvise his 20x20 from images created by an illustrator... pictures he has not seen before projection. This challenge will probably prove that ridicule kills... or not. This can also be fine. Or not. 

APPLAUD THIS!

Revival

BY CIANCIO ALEXANDRE
@ VOL 10 ON JUL 01, 2015

Architect and artist Ciancio Alexandre gives a second chance to old photographs. He collects forgiven clichés with no known history and transforms them into brand new collages. On one hand he mixes up pictures in a realistic way to confuse spectators and create unexpected scenes and situations. On another hand he uses illustration and colors to highlight particular moments and characters of the original photoss. More than a graphic work, he tries to evoke and create new stories, new emotions. {In French}
