Christian Lebrat (born in 1952) is a filmmaker, video artist, photographer and French editor. Since 1976, Lebrat created twenty films, videos and performances to film. These works are in the collections of the Centre Georges Pompidou and the FNAC (National Fund of Contemporary Art).
Lebrat was inspired by abstract expressionist painting, especially paintings by Mark Rothko, and secondly, by the radicalism of films by Peter Kubelka which he published the first monograph. Lebrat’s films can be characterized by the decomposition of the image particles (strips of light) with the goal to blow up the frame of the image and form novel color intensities. Lebrat did not intend total abstraction but rather the culmination of a narrative and conceptual film. Lately, he incorporated the paint directly on film in his work and has developed a video work in the form of a projection or installation.
