Jonathan Vinel: Martin Pleure (2017)
presented by »La Plage«
- 01.07.2017 to 07.01.2018
As a project space invited to present an intervention within »Hybrid Layers«, »La Plage« will curate the online program, which runs from July 1, 2017 to January 7, 2018, parallel to »La Plage« participation in the exhibition. Founded in 2015, »La Plage« is a project space based in Paris run by Valentina Cipullo and Francesca Mangion.
The third video presented by »La Plage« for Hybrid Layers is »Martin Pleure«, 2017 by Jonathan Vinel.
»Martin Pleure« (Martin Cries), a 16-minute video by French filmmaker Jonathan Vinel, is based on elements sourced from the video game »Grand Theft Auto V«. Arboreal sequences set the backdrop for Martin’s linear story, that of a young man who is being ghosted by his friends and decides to go looking for them. Romantic statements and idyllic settings clash with Martin’s erratic and often violent behavior. As the search goes on, we follow Martin fearlessly embracing a series of diverging emotions, from rage and melancholia to the expectation of finding his friends unharmed.
