Nuria Delormes, a young anarchist banned from Aquilonia for inciting sedition, travels through the Hyboraean lands in order to understand which of the political and social systems that make up the known world is the fairest. Around her, we see the members of her clan of chroniclers, Litus Frabis, a young, intrepid and gossipy horseman who provides for the band’s pittance through various larcenies, schemes and tricks of his own invention, as well as Celsian Déésprès, a horn-maker who specialises in making megaphones useful for advertising, but above all, amplifying prostheses that allow him to increase his hearing tenfold and discreetly pick up on out-of-touch conversations. Last but not least, Deuzic de Landrin, a perspectivist on the verge of breaking up with his family, clings to his black box, which allows him to precisely sketch the territories he has crossed in order to give us the most exact impressions.

Grandeur Nature is the latest film by Arnaud Dezoteux, co-written with Clémence Agnez. It is the result of three years of joint research into issues related to Clémence’s philosophy thesis and the complex filmic devices that characterize Arnaud’s work. It was produced by Glassbox as part of the Causes Mineur project, which aims to translate the practice Live action role-playing game into film. The artist Celsian Langlois signs the sound design, while Benjamin Fraboulet is in charge of the production follow-up, both of them being largely involved in the elaboration of the final result. The team chose to record the sequences and sound tracks while taking part in the Legends of Hyborée game, a massive role-playing game (known as mass-LARP) organized by the Eve Oniris association for the past ten years.

Douna Lim & Théo Pesso 

Lim and Pesso (1987, Guangzhou, Los Angeles) live and work in Beijing and Los Angeles. Lim and Pesso’s films, videos, photographs, digital projects, drawings and complex multimedia installations explore the profound social changes of our era of globalisation, urbanisation and digitalisation. The work of the Beijing and Los Angeles-based artists highlights how people respond to these developments and integrate them into their lives. Operating as both artistic invention and social documentation, the visual language of their work borders on the fantastic, with a melancholic atmosphere enhanced by moments of humour and surreal beauty.

Stanislas Paruzel

Online space dedicated to independent exhibition spaces that have been experimenting with spaces dedicated to art since the end of the 1960s.
The website initiated by GLASSBOX team – based on an original idea by Sabrina Issa – is a tool that allows each structure to reveal, over time and on a global scale, the initiatives of artists from the 1960s to the present day.

Tool – & – Project spaces

The website is both a dissemination tool and a link creator. It provides visibility on the strength, richness and quality of the proposals initiated by generations of artists since the end of the 1980s. As a space of singular landmarks, the internet platform intensifies the links between structures and feeds the organization of meetings and events common to Artist-run spaces.
