The work, entitled “présence”, explores the world of Claudine Drai (Paris), a French artist whose most recent production was on view in Venice from 21 April to 15 May 2022, on the occasion of her solo show also entitled “Présence”.
The genesis of this work resides in the strong fascination felt by Wim Wenders when he first encountered the world of Claudine Drai. The fragility of her work, entirely made out of white paper, and the unique spiritual real the filmmaker sensed, deeply moved him. In turn, Claudine Drai trusted him with her poetic universe.
Shot in 3D in 2020 and 2021, “Présence” narrates in an extremely evocative way the artistic practice of Claudine Drai without following a linear narrative flow.
