video - installation  (1998 - 2008)


A STONE OR NOT A STONE 

(animated movie) -1998-

 

The viewer : ASONAS Looks like a scientific tool, a kind of particle accelerator or some observation device.



SNOW

(colorized video movie) -1998-

 

An implosion or an explosion. Then, like a tended filament, space changes. Large color fields are passing.

The movie is based on colorizing a layer of snow that melts.

May be infinite is close to us?

PENDULE -2002-

 

Video installation in an elevator with a choregraphy of Thierry Bastin performed during Lieux Prolongés

It's about Scientific questioning (reference to the pendulum of Foucault) and mouvement of time - light, shadows and clouds are put in relation....



VANITAS -2003-

 

The video takes place in an industrial barrel of blue colour comparable to the one which served during the recording.

It is a "narcissistic" confrontation between me and some maggots at work. The film puts me in relation (my face in the water - mirror) with a dead mole in decomposition process.

This is a simple vanity and a moment of meditation on me (my body) and its final fate.



LEVENSDANS EN LOKAAS -2003-

-dance of life and bait-

 

A TV-monitor lies horizontally with a magnifying glass in the middle. Boxes containing poison for ants are also laid around in the room. In the first part - dance of life - (2.20 min), a wood larva tries to survive. In the second part - bait - (4.15 min) it becomes for a short moment the bait for an ant.

It was performed during Lieux Prolongés 2



VANITAS 2 -2005-

At the beginning of the movie a brush cleans gently an egg-shaped object. The noise of the brush changes gradually into that of a pneumatic drill and ends like the crackle of the needle on a record-player. It's only at the end of the film, when the needle slips, that we see for a short moment the object is a skull. Afterwards the film burns.

The film questions our slow metamorphosis towards physical disappearance and shows the fragility of supports: the film, the disc, and our physical body of course.
