Duration: 5:18
Du cerceuil is based on a dream involving Louis Riel, his coffin (located at the St-Boniface museum in Winnipeg), a transsexual body and a minefield of race, body and community politics. This footage was reprocessed first through filmed projection, then through a 1970s era video mixer. Du cerceuil is an excerpt from a 3-channel installation that will hopefully be up in the fall of 2007.rémy huberdeau is sometimes a video artist who works with documentary, animation and experimental forms, whenever the timing is right.

I wanted to find an point where teen angst intersects with the sublime. I could not accept the responsibility of creating vision so I have inserted myself into a fabric woven together from the 'vision' of others. My character finds himself arguing through pop lyrics with a masked mirror image over webcam; emotionally stricken he succumbs to the overwhelm of his subconcious which manifests as a strange world that pulses to electronic rhythms and melodies.
