Out of Chaos: an Artist’s Trip to Haiti
In 2009, Pascal Giacomini participated in the 2nd Ghetto Biennale, an art event set in the Grand Rue neighborhood of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, one of the most poverty-stricken neighborhoods on the planet. After working alongside fellow sculptors for three weeks in this environment, he created three large-scale sculptures (he’s the white guy in one of the photos!), and the experience altered his creative process. Welcome to a slice of life in a sector known as much for its harsh living conditions as for its exuberant production of local art.
The movie is slated to be 75 minutes long, and release date is early 2015
