Interview: Pierre Ajavon

Luca Curci talks with Pierre Ajavon during VISIONS, ANIMA MUNDI Festival in Venice
Pierre Ajavon was born in Paris (France) in 1966. He is a video artist, multi-instrumentalist musician and composer, arranger and sound engineer. He lives and works in Paris. After majoring in social sciences in the Psychedelic Culture area, he undertook a long musical journey. While undergoing training as sound engineer in 2013, Pierre Ajavon moved toward video art to broaden his own feld of artistic expression. He produced many experimental short films which he flmed, edited, and provided with a musical production. Ajavon has exhibited individually in Paris, and has participated in many collective exhibitions and festivals throughout the world – Europe (Madrid, Bilbao, Berlin, Venice, Milan, London) America (USA, Chile, Mexico, Colombia) & Asia (Indonesia, South Korea), in addition to his presence at numerous international art fairs. Since 2015 he has diversifed his research. He redefned the dialogue between sound and moving pictures by creating a triangulation henceforth including still images.

Luca Curci – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival?

Pierre Ajavon – The video “Moonage Daydream #27” that I have shown at ANIMA MUNDI ‘Visions’, is a psychedelic and aesthetic reverie – an inner vision. The mind wanders to the soundscape, reminiscences and apparitions. Moonage Daydream #27 is a a cosmic dream, foating in weightlessness in the midst of organic shapes with moving dynamic colors.

L.C. – What are you currently working on?

P.A. – There are many artistic projects that I am currently involved with I have just fnished a soundtrack for the forthcoming Barbara Matas movie (Politics and Eggs). Currently I work on a project called “Full moon suite”, including 5 experimental videos, 5
musical compositions along with 12 aluminium based digital works. This time, I used video to create moving and evolving paintings through strange lunar refections.

 

L.C. – Are your artworks focused on a specifc theme?

P.A. – My work is mainly inspired by the dream and the unconscious and remains very marked by psychedelia, surrealism, dark romanticism, as well in the treatment of the images and colors as in the search for sounds.

L.C. – How is being an artist nowadays?

P.A. – Being an artist is always difcult, but it is also what saves you.
There is inspiration in everything, my ideas depends on emotions, questions and thoughts, which I try to transform in music, rhythm, and then in moving pictures, light and colors.

 

L.C. – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?

P.A. – First, it is to fnd enough time and mental availability in busy life to work on new art projects. Then to fnd the best artistic way to develop my basic idea while marrying sound and image and transforming the flmed images by the work of color and light.

L.C. – What’s the art tip you usually receive? Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?

P.A. – Of course, the reactions of visitors and their comments are always very rewarding and sometimes allow to see in my work some aspects that I myself had not suspected! This allows another reading of his own work and it is terribly exciting and rewarding.

 

L.C. – Do you think It’s LIQUID Group can represent an opportunity for artists?

P.A. – It’s liquid is a great opportunity for an artist, the art works are of high quality, there are presented in prestigious places, and the mix of diferent mediums is really very interesting. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase his work internationally.
