Boris Labbé & Daniele Ghisi

Boris Labbé (born 1987 in Lannemezan, France) is a graphic and video artist as well as a director who works mainly with animation and installation. He is interested in the way space and time are ordered in film and video production, and in exploring and disrupting the patterns that result. In 2012, his project Kyrielle was awarded the Special Jury’s prize for Graduation Films at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. He has collaborated with Sacrebleu Productions to direct two short films, Rhizome (2015) and La Chute (in progress). In 2016, Rhizome won the Golden Nica award at Ars Electronica in Computer Animation/Film/ VFX. His works have been exhibited internationally including at OK Center for Contemporary Art, Linz; Aichi Triennale, Nagoya; National Art Center, Tokyo; Cinémathèque Québécoise, Montréal and Erarta Museum of contemporary art, Saint Petersburg. He has shown work in more than a hundred international film festivals including Hiroshima Festival, Trickfilm Festival and Animafest.
