La galerie de la Biennale

A girl is covered with a sack before being run over by a runaway car; is drenched with gasoline, then set alight and trampled by her assailants; is wrapped in a blanket and killed with an axe. A delirious frenzy or reality seen through the dilating eye of a badly adjusted camera? Shot with his little sister’s mobile phone, Alan Bulfin’s three films look like a "happy slapping" session gone completely grotesque. All the tricks of amateur moviemaking are used – but by being exposed for what they are: the camera discreetly turns away while the actors hastily replace the young actress with a crude dummy; the same character appears several times in a row, as in a video game; and the tricks used are so laughable as to make the whole thing unbelievable. This, however, is how "Kiling Hur" makes its point: by pitilessly reminding viewers of their role as voyeurs in a world saturated with amateur images.

Customised guided tours will run throughout the Biennale at La Sucrière and the Museum of Contemporary Art, tailored to audiences ranging from the last year of nursery school up to higher education.
These experiences allow real interaction between group and mediator.
The discovery trails are devised to sharpen the eye, awaken sensibilities and hone the critical faculties, while exploring the latest work and developments on the contemporary-art scene.

For primary-school pupils...

The Biennale is partnering with the Petitart association to offer a four-part "contemporary art" module, dispensed at the Biennale and in the classroom.
It aims to familiarise pupils with contemporary art through the discovery of an international exhibition (with workshop and education pack), combined with fun and educational activities in the classroom.
