THE SUGAR CLUB
Louis-Ferdinand Nieto Peralta Adams Born in Colombia in 1971, his work is influenced by the Latin- American philosopher Francisco Flores and the Perversionism mouvement. Nieto studied Physics and Mathematics in Bogota, before moving for a short period to the Theology Department, after which he specialised in animal physiology at the Academy of Surgery and Medicine.
Prof Nieto’s passion for video has never left him and he continues to film all his experiences and experiments. In 2009, he co-directed with the primatologist Prof. Shibuya, an experimental protocol on animal communication in Japan. Together, they taught the cinematographic language to a monkey named “Capucine”. This successful process led to Capucine getting the title of the first monkey film-maker in the world.
