Breathe In Breathe Out, film, 2019

Inspired by Rebet’s recent journeys in the north of Thailand, Breathe In, Breathe Out, 2019, follows the spiritual journey of a monk as he descends a mountain. His path is transformed by the metamorphoses of animals and plants mixed with architectural and mythical forms evoking the devastation of our natural environment in this era of globalisation. Rebet’s film opens and closes with excerpts from Théorie de la métamorphose, a text by philosopher Emanuele Coccia which contributed to the research behind the animation. The film was originally produced as part of Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain’s Nomadic Nights programme for their exhibition, Trees, with the related drawings forming part of a performance.
