OX, ANOTHER VISION OF THE CITY

 

“OX: another vision of the city” is a short documentary about French artist OX and his personal way of seeing the city.

It was filmed during Nuart Festival (Stavanger, Norway) in September 2019, when OX was working on a complex project encompassing the installation for Nuart’s “Brand New, You’re Retro” exhibition; public interventions such as paste-ups on advertisement billboards, mural, and painting on a van.

The documentary consists of three thematic parts respectively illuminating the way of work by the artist in a public space; the very beginning of his practice in Parisian collective “Frères Ripoulin” in the early 80s (with personal inspiration and life-changing encounters); and his ability to intertwine the studio work and street practice through some theories (like his idea of “stencil in reverse”) as common denominator. One of the most valuable parts of OX’s approach is that he never ceases to ask questions whether they are directed to himself, the environment, or the audience. These questions always generate solutions, brief moments when the city could be seen in another way.
