Le cours des cours (The course of the courses) is a video installation that projects a minimal, uniform and linear river landscape on three screens arranged in a circle. The large dimensions of the installation allow the spectator to be at the centre of this landscape and to be carried away by the opposite movements of the water, the bank and the sky.

In Bertrand Rigaux’s work, the landscape is an essential motif brought into play in a process of construction and deconstruction. By means of slight digital manipulations or changes of scale, the artist operates a metamorphosis of the landscape-architecture into a landscape-machine autonomous from reality, allowing each person to experience it from within.
