A new film by French directors Maison Vignaux takes an experimental approach to documentary, fusing footage of Berlin-based artist Tim Plamper at work with shots of his studio, surround and the work itself. Here, the director talks about the collaboration:
“I got the chance to interview the artist and document the preparation of his solo exhibition Zone at Galerie Suzanne Tarasieve, Paris, this autumn. What started as a normal documentary quickly became a journey into the artist’s unique world when we began to question the form of the documentary itself.

“The art, the process, the vision and the artist’s words all merge with the visual language of this film to deliver the closest feeling to experiencing what inhabits Plamper’s singular mind.
