Aesthetica Art Prize 2019 shortlisted artist Ludivine Large-Bessette works across photography, video and dance. In her work, the body becomes a mirror that is able to unsettle and move the audience, interrogating and confront audiences with the role of the body in social interactions and in the contemporary environment.
In the selected film, Drop Out Bodies, a monotonous silence envelops a group of men and women who are standing still in front of their houses. They fall, one by one, in a random pattern. The film questions the fatality of the human body, as well as individual and collective responsibilities in these complex times.
See the work on view at the Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition, opening at York Art Gallery on 8 March. Find out more here.
