Ragazzo, 2002
Video, color, sound, 2:42 min.

A bucolic backdrop lends a stark contrast to a startling masked figure, that of Carlo Giuliani, activist killed during the demonstrations in Genoa, Italy in July of 2001. The artist moves to and fro in the foreground, attempting to make a photographic portrait of Giuliani. Space is defined – literally – by the artist’s position to the subject, and figuratively by the position of the viewers to the potent historical image of Giuliani.

4'33'' (AMOR), 2007
Video, color, sound, 4:33 min.

Proportion and spectacle create a deafening tension in Ganne’s 4’33”(AMOR). Attention is diverted from the action on the playing field during a soccer match and shifted instead to the growing frenzy of the spectators.

4'33'' (PORN), 2007
Video, color, sound 4:33 min.

A blurred and pixilated image of a woman moving in and out of the frame, she stares at an unknown source, swaying to and fro seductively.

A seemingly useless action brings into focus the surrounding context.

JEAN-BAPTISTE GANNE

Born in 1972, France, Jean-Baptiste Ganne lives and works in Nice. He studied at Villa Arson, Nice and was a resident artist at Rijksakademie in Amsterdam in 2003-2004 and in Villa Medici in Rome until April 2007. With various modes of expression as photography, writing, performances, video and installations, the activities of Jean-Baptiste Ganne are articulated around the “representation of politics and the politic of representations” He illustrated Marx’s Capital chapter by chapter (The Illustrated Capital, 1998-2003), he has been on strike (cooking) for six days during open studios in Rijksakademie (The Cookist, 2003) or decided to spread out his production budget converted to ten cents coins in Rome (Senza Titolo (All that Glitters is Gold), 2007). He exhibited with WHW in Zagreb (2001) published with Fotohof in Salzburg (2003), showed at Ellen de Bruijne Project in Amsterdam (2005 and 2006) and conceived ‘El albergue holandès’ at La Station in Nice (2006) as well as participating in many internationally renowned exhibitions.
