As part of the Résonance film screenings for the Art & Industrie 2023 Triennial, the Lille-Sequedin prison is screening Ariane Michel’s film Hugues et les vagues as part of Le souffle, l’air et l’eau.

In 2015, Ariane Michel organised a “coastal collective exhibition” in Brittany, which for her was also a place for filming, where the aim was to subject the artistic gesture to contact with the elements, particularly the sea. This film is the result of a collaboration with Hugues Reip, who created an installation called Wavers (2015-2018), a garden proliferating in a puddle of water between rocks, which was washed away by the first tide. Ariane Michel, in turn, observes the work’s fate in the midst of the elements. Following the flowers to the bottom of the waves, she has chosen to become part of the landscape, the better to let us feel its presence.
