Yvain!, 2018

video game

Yvain! is a video game – an artwork to be played – by artist Éric Giraudet de Boudemange, developed in collaboration with game designer Tomavatars. The project follows his residency with La Criée centre of contemporary art . This first experimental adventure game is inspired by a passage from the novel Yvain, the Knight to the Lion by Chrétien de Troyes, written in the twelfth century. Heartbroken, Yvain the knight flees civilization. He sinks into the forest, leaving his clothes, losing the use of speech and reason. In this contemporary interpretation, we guide the main character, at the paste of his lament, through an absurd and offbeat medieval universe, at the crossroads of courtly love and Game of Thrones.
