Biography

The collectif_fact comprised Annelore Schneider and Claude Piguet. They live and work between London and Geneva.
Their projects, mainly video based, are often a deconstruction of what we see as cinematic codes within our visual culture. They are fascinated with daily repetition, stereotypes and clichés that suffuse our popular culture. They deal mainly with aspects of (anti)spectacle, simulacra and appropriation. To do so, they investigate the ways that narrative can be appropriated, disrupted and re-edited to construct different stories and alternative meanings. Their videos frequently use the spectator’s ability to construct stories from ruptured narrative fragments. In fact, their videos weave together a complex mesh of references: fragments of dialogues, citations and music extracts. A collage of recognizable, familiar images with a multitude of allusion to cinema classics. collectif_fact play with our desire to be gripped and even deceived by images and stories.
By creating works that appropriate cinematic codes and strategies, they encourage the viewer to reflect critically on the habits that condition our perceptions of reality.

From 2002 to 2009, the collectif_fact comprised Annelore Schneider, Claude Piguet and Swann Thommen.
