Michel Jaffrenou (1944-2023)

Or Jaff to his friends, and many of them regret his sudden departure.

A visual artist, avant-gardist and performer, he literally dives into video art.

The electronic e-magician made a name for himself in the 80s by bringing video to the stage with his wacky, facetious pieces: Totologiques, Electronique Vidéo Circus, Videoperette, etc.

He has performed several times at VIDEOFORMES, including Diguiden, and a new work, Requiem des Elfes (produced by VIDEOFORMES in 1993), in which he criticised the environmental unacceptability of our society.

Jaff’s friends are paying him a somewhat ramshackle tribute with a rapid collage of photos, video footage and a garland of testimonies in the form of an exquisite corpse, to be published in the VIDEOFORMES 2024 catalogue in French and English, with an original unaltered translation by an overworked (of course!) AI.
