Frédéric Lavoie began making videos when it became possible to make films on a solo basis (small spectacle films), a time which also coincided with the end of his university education in ethnology. His work is an effort to provoke experimental feelings : the audio-visual balances thus created enable him to send an ambiguous or dissonant message. Duration seems non-existent. His practices of assemblage, in keeping with his education, seek to carry out new narratives and tie in secondary discursive logics (poetry, aphorism, private diary, correspondence) as an organisational model. His work and installations have been shown at the 21st International Festival of Films on Art, the 15th Instants vidéo de Manosque, the 20th Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois and the Maison de la Culture Plateau Mont-Royal.
