Material Incidents: A Collection of Digital Videos
U.S.A. / 36:00 / 1992-2004 / sound / colour
MATERIAL INCIDENTS is a DVD compilation of work featuring the following titles:

TABULA RASA (1993-2004) 7:30 min.
Filmed in a South Bronx high-school, "Tabula Rasa" explores the ambiguousness of appearances cultivated by institutions, the clues that tell the history of objects, colours, textures, architecture and, ultimately, psychological states.
Second Prize, Media City 11; Jury's Citation, Black Maria Festival

HERE (2002) 7:00 min.
"Here" plays as some form of synthetic/organic haiku or renga (Japanese linked poetry), linking semblance to semblance working with the primal power and suggestiveness of transient colours.
Gold for Best Experimental Film, New York Film Expo

COLOR STUDY (2000) 4:30 min.
A humorous, digitally induced meditation on colours, motion and space form a few frames of roadside fall panorama in upstate NY.
Second Prize, Black Maria Film & Video Festival

WINTER COLLECTION (1992-2000) 4:30 min.

MATERIAL INCIDENTS (2001) 5:00 min.
"Material Incidents" brings a layered look to the secrets of light's rituals and its loose associations with matter, temperature and the senses.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Vincent Grenier "is one of the most rigorous filmmakers of the experimental cinema and one of the most ingenious by the simplicity with which the questions of time and movement are accessed and put into images and sounds. Since his very first films, Grenier focuses his interest on the simple gestures of the everyday. To dissolve the abstraction, to draw one's attention on the minute details which, when filmed, become very poetic and reveal the individual behind the mechanical and the routine..." (Nicole Gingras).
