Lydie Jean-Dit-Pannel, born in France in 1968, is an artist always on the go. By means of long-term projects she enquires into the image, life, memory and living things. She teaches at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Art in Dijon, France. Since the late 1980s, Lydie-Jean-Dit-Pannel’s work has taken shape through video, performance and installation. Her work is regularly shown in festivals and institutions around the world. In 2005 she won the SCAM award for Le Panlogon, a video work in progress begin in 2000. Le Panlogon is a collection of video long takes—visual and sound haikus numbered from zero to infinity. Like antennae on the world, they are at one and the same time self-portraiture, travel diary and sketchbook. Lydie Jean-Dit-Pannel herself has become a moving image through her singular use of tattooing. An ardent traveller, she has obtained a female Monarch butterfly tattoo in every country she has visited. The Monarch, the only migrating butterfly on the planet, travels each year from Quebec to the forests of Mexico in search of sun and love.
