Since three years video is used as a red wire for this exhibition inside the rooms of the WindsoR hotel. The art galleries invent some concepts building on their artists capacities based on several mediums for changing the rooms meanings. Following this way two formats are proposed to the visitors. The first names dark room looks like a black box and the second entitled clear room creates an universe propitious for connection between video and art. Among the videos introduce some take our attention. The Guido Van der Werve performance show us a man walking on ice following by a big boat for questioning us about the part playing by human being in large landscapes. The artist prepare meticulously his small films because he improves a huge feeling for movie making. The "Pulse" video (Juliette Berthonneau, Salomé Chatriot, Marie Wolf Metternich) put face to facde the real and the picturial for making a surrealist atmosphere. The videos propose by the "Entre | Deux" art gallery (Kourtney Roy, Loïc Le Pivert, Aurore Dupin) speak about the road movie. Kourtney Roy shoots ordinary characters with her camera she rises up as movie stars. Loïc le Pivert uses black ink drawings as story boards and Aurore Dupin prefers dealing about stolen moments. The "Camera / Camera" festival ends itself with a tribute to the collectors ("Private Collection #3") who always play an important part in art making.
