veni vidi non sedi
(A colloborative multimedia cd-rom) -2001-
Pictures, movies and soundtracks : Bernard Lepercq
Writing : Michel Voiturier
You will travel trough 8 locations and surroudings ...
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....
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.
