1987-2003 FRANCE
Cathy Vogan - Dominik Barbier

 

FEARLESS Studios, Paris

   Co-founded, with French artist Dominik Barbier, FEARLESS: the first broadcast facility dedicated to electronic creation. Partially funded on an annual and individual grant basis, by several departments of the Ministere de la Culture de de la Communication (DAP, DRAC, CNAP), to receive and produce media artists, and partially financed by public and private commission. For 7 years, my specific r™le was to post-produce the work of scores of French and international artists, e.g. Alain Renais (France), Ko Nakajima (Japan) and Robert Longo (USA).

 

  The FEARLESS Artists

   FEARLESS was composed of 3 permanent in-house artists: Dominik Barbier, Cathy Vogan and Leonard Faulon. The other members of the group were Robert Cahen, Yann N'Guyen Minh and Jean Claude Poirel. Many films, electronic sculptures,and large-scale, theatrical installations were created at the studios by these core members, operating both as solo artists and as collaborators. Of note: < THE NO WAY BUSTER PROJECT > (1989), spectacle mutant by BARBIER/ VOGAN, which involved 6 synchronized video sources, 600 sq. metres of sculpture and walk-through environment, and a 23' "main event".

  .........................................................................................................................................................................

 

  FEARLESS achievements

  In 1989 Fearless, with Bernard Szajner receives the commission: < ESPRIT DE LA REVOLUTION >, spectadclar for the French Bicentenary at the Jardin des Tuilleries, and produces the material for 3 countries at the World Expo, Seville in 1992. the Fearless team collaborates artistically with such figures as TERRY GILLIAM Moebius, Pierre Schaeffer, and especially, Heiner Muller, with their 1994 biographical documentary < I WAS HAMLET > (73' Direction: D. Barbier; Image and Post-production: C. Vogan), and the 7-year project: < HAMLET MACHINE >, a large-scale electronic and stage production of his seminal work, which premired in Marseille in May 2003.

 

 

FEARLESS Medi@terrannee 2007

In 1997, Fearless moved to Marseille, where it still operates today under the above-mentioned name. The new High Definition facility continues to welcome resident artists, and focuses primarily on hybrid art forms, situating the productions at the crossroads between Electronic Creation and Theatre. A new company has emerged witin this context of live theatrical performance: COMETH (Compagnie d'Explorations des Territoires Hybrides). My last on-site envolvement with the company was for the production of "Hamlet Machine". It is now via FTP.

 

Fearless Cathy Vogan

Over the 16 years I spent in Paris, I created and exposed many personal works, in the form of single tapes, video-sculptures, installations and theatrical events, including two electronic ballets: < TALOS & KOINE > (1988), and for TELECOM INTERACTIVE, <TOUCH> (1999). Another major work: < THE NIGHT OF THE FULL MOON > (2000), took the form of a 3-hour live-to-air television broadcast for the Franco-German Cultural Channel, ARTE. This event was given to me after the success of their 52' documentary, < THREE APPROACHES > (Dir. Matthias Behrens), which focused on my work, and that of two other artists, Hanno Baethe and Alexander Hahn.

For 4-years, for the company Kiron TV, I directed a weekly program on European cultural events, entitled < AFFICHES >, which was broadcast in Europe (FRANCE 3, EURONEWS), and around the world on TV5. I became the company's principal editor, compositor, animator, web designer, and DVD author. Most of the products I worked on were designed for broadcast: TVC, documentary, clip, live-to air for MTV etc. In 2002 one of my tasks was to finalize 2 daily prime-time shows: "Tout le monde en parle" for TF1, and "On a tout essaye" for FRANCE2. In 2000-2001, I edited two 52-minute documentaries entitled "Le Mafia a Hollywood" and "Glamour a Hollywood" (portrait of film director George Sidney). I continued to work for Kiron until I left France in 2003. My last two missions were to work with Christopher Rothko, as compositor and colourist for a documentary on his father, the painter Mark Rothko, and as team leader and author of a bi-weekly 52-episode DVD edition: < IMAGES OF WAR >, for client Marshall Cavendish. My team brought a 6-figure profit to the company in 2002.
