Filmmaker Pierre-Luc Vaillancourt has developed a body of work investigating trance and liminality. He’s coming to Alchemy to present his film Ruins Rider in our Installations programme.
What lies at the heart of your own desire to make films?
Ruins Rider is an atlas of power-zones. A magical current is charged through the act of filming, flowing through my whole body and mind, piercing through the image. This life force guided my shooting, deeply fusing the mythical portals and the volcanos of my consciousness. This approach is sustained by a meticulous and deep dedication to the transmutation process of the hypnotic ruins, the image’s revelatory nature and within my own cognitive’s elemental structure. The pulsating and magnetic ruins embody the numinous fire and limitless light. High voltage telluric blast.
