Elsa Brès’ films and installations highlight forces of resistance at work in the contemporary socio-natural landscape. At the crossroads of research, storytelling, and experimentation, her work, which is often collaborative, takes root in “frictional” terrains like the rural, mountainous Cévennes region in southern France where the artist lives and works. Connivéncia at La Loge is her first exhibition in Belgium, and brings together works produced as part of a film project, Les Sanglières, that began in 2020. The artist investigates the figure of the boar as a potential ally in the anti-patriarchal and anti-capitalist struggle.
The exhibition is organized in partnership with Fondation d'entreprise Pernod Ricard, and the support of Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP).
