Ludivine Large-Bessette


Trained at La Femis in Paris and at the Goldsmiths University in London, Ludivine Large-Bessette's favorite mediums are video and photography. Very early on, she became interested in the body and its representations. The discovery of contemporary dance marked has been a real turning point in her practice as a visual artist. She is now developing a body of work at the frontiers of these three fields, in which she regularly directs dancers. Her works are created and/or exhibited in photo and film
festivals (Addis Foto Fest, Filmwinter Festival for
Expended Media Stuttgart, Instants Video
Marseille, FIPA Biarritz, International
TanzFilmPlattform Berlin), contemporary art
art venues (Salon de Montrouge, Friche
Belle de Mai Marseille, Aesthetica Art Prize
York, Young Creation, Nuit Blanche Paris,
Enghien-les-Bains Arts Center) and
contemporary dance venues (Ballet du Nord CCN
of Roubaix, Cent-Quatre Paris). She
is associate artist at the Art Center
l’Espace Croisé in Roubaix (FR) and at La Malterie
in Lille (FR) for the 2022-2023 season.



Following an investigation into the appearance and proliferation of popular images of prehistoric women dragged by their hair by cavemen, a stereotype often wrongly presented as historical, Ludivine Large-Bessette imagines a new account of this myth. As if to undo it or to follow it up, she creates a series of chapters from hair trapped in omniscient hands. By introducing strategies of deliverance, articulating the expression of sisterhood, and choreographing bodies in resilience without tricks, she opens up the possibility of writing new horizons in common.
