Map residency 2017: Mathilde Veyrunes at PRIM (Montréal)
Mathilde Veyrunes attended Toulouse’s Fine Arts School before moving out to Paris in order to develop her artistic skills. This year, she began to work on a new projet called Never Nowhere. Already known for her past short film called The Run produced in 2014 and supported by the Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP), Mathilde is presently developing an investigation about self.
In this experimental short film about 10 minutes long, Mathilde conceives the geographical space of lowland and snowy canadian plains as an area where the mind of the character wanders both physically and mentally. She explores the gaze that became stranger to its origins, on the way a place reminds us things that we aren’t anymore. Inspired by Cheryl’s Strayed and Robyn’s Davidson survivor travel, Mathilde Veyrunes chooses to profile a woman wondering about the possibility of saving her soul by completely changing her quiet life.
At this moment, Mathilde Veyrunes is finalising video editing work. The short film will be presented in May of this year.
