About the Artwork
“Daily Battles is an art film about a work of art. This short film brings a new dimension to the medieval fantasies as metaphors. With each medieval scene, we enter a tale of struggle, battle and trickery representing the challenges of life.”
La Vie de Château
About the Artwork
“Created for the Château de la Roche-Jagu, Côtes d’Armor France, the film premiered on the castle’s walls for the summer film festival 2017. The movie tells many stories of castle’s life by following 2 magic umbrellas. This animation depicts fantasies and Britanny which is very similar to the Connecticut coast.”

Beatrice Coron : “I collect many stories. Born and raised in France, I was a city dweller, a shepherdess and truck driver among others, then I worked in tourism and lived in Egypt, China, Mexico and became an artist in New York. I enjoy stories and working with my hands.
For the last 30 years, I have been exploring visual storytelling in artist books, paper cutting and public art. I stage narrative allegories in silhouette to create a dialogue with the viewer in playful fantasies. They become collaborative artwork as each viewer will read them through their own interpretation.
My work can be seen in major collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Walker Art Center. You can see my public art in subways, airport in New York, Chicago, Cleveland among others.
