Synopsis:
This documentary presents the work of the Belgian painter, screen printer and publisher Bernard Villers. The artist plays on the expectations of the visitor, or reader, by offering a rigid work where objects are unburdened of their superfluous load. “What I’m looking for is to be labor saving: to do as little as possible. But also to do the maximum with the least possible.” Pure colors and geometric shapes punctuate reflections on materials and media, but also on double-siding, shadow or transparency. The film accompanies the artist in his workshop, in Brussels, and during exhibitions, allowing him to explain in his own words his artistic research.
