Yannick Dangin Leconte - Film Art

Yannick Dangin Leconte, a pluridisciplinary artist, painter, who also composes his pictorial and graphic universe by creating videos in multiples formations. Self-taught, since 2005 he has been constituting a cycle of short films hosted on youtube as ydl orphans.

My work is deeply rooted in traditional painting. Constant under an “exhaustion” principle, I have been using its form as an expression both through classical tools and a more gruelling approach of it. Probing actual technologies to push the representation to its edge. Fixing a transient state. Losing the gesture. Questioning the original state... I find myself in a place with multiple devices and certain rules of a game that eventually reaffirm this “practice”. I commit in video via art and music in particular. It allows me to come up with other visuals solutions and more complex speech, creating moving and live paintings.

Since 2005 I have been forming a vlog, a diary set in digital age pointed at the “little things”. Principally a self-portrait, a basic “I” that invests various spheres of human activity. Secondly, a vanity animated by classical themes of Art: “Life, Death, Cows”. And finally, an articulation, using the personal in order to open it up on what we watch and what watches us.

Overall a rather sarcastic and dark universe, but not without poetry. Artistic practice and philosophy that try to give order and control over a permanent noise of the “real”: there’s nothing nowhere.
