  Charles de Meaux is one of those artists for whom the cinema constitutes a major axis of contemporary art, a hotbed of experimentation which provides the possibility to push the boundaries of this creative domain and to build on the question of fiction and pop imagination that are his driving force. In 1997, he founded the production company Anna Sanders Films with Pierre Huygue, Philippe Parreno and Dominique Gonzales- Foerster, thus inventing a fictitious character, a ghost symbolizing an intermediary between cinema and art, a way of freeing himself from the financial restraints of the 7ème art.
