Xavier Veilhan maintains strong links to architecture, as reflected in his project Architectones (2012-2014). With Vent Moderne, he creates a film that plays with perspectives, scale and the links between set and architecture. The sequences are built around the figure of a designer, a creator, an architect, to whom French actor Micha Lescot lends his traits. Vent Moderne brings to life a succession of fantasized moments in the protagonist’s life: the process of architectural design, meetings, travels, moments of celebration and pleasure, et cetera. This narrative aspect is complemented by a more abstract dimension, a string of visual evocations through which the spectator traces his own path.
