Stemming from the Beaux-Arts school of Tours and from the Conservatoire libre du cinéma français,
Boris Jean became an art director and a director in the film industry (Les Épaves, Grand prix du
festival d’Avoriaz),in advertising and live performance. Influenced by the Stanley Kubrick’s cult
movie, he leads since 2001 his own odyssey, by building « Little Big », a futuristic city realized
in miniature with rubbish and simply recycled objects.He who learnt with Jean Giraud aka Mœbius,
to raise eyes towards the sky, invites us to look at the city as if it was overflown by a plane
we were in, perceiving its lights through the porthole, and looking close to discover the way
he plays with the architecture of the masters of the reinforced concrete and the vacuity of
the Haussmann order. And because it is also a game, the spectator is urged to click three
times on his smartphone to obtain a night even more mysterious, even more poetic, even
more fantastic, urban vision of the landscape.
