MIRROR

by Christoph GIRARDET & Matthias MÜLLER
2003 / color / sound / 1S / 8' 10

A woman, a man, guests at an evening party.
Settings, which are gradually abandoned; the remains of an event, gazes that have lost their object.
In MIRROR, frozen tableaux are animated by light alone, which creates connections but also isolates the figures and separates them from the surrounding space. Like the axis of a mirror, a tear runs through the centre of the image, separating the two halves but uniting them into a single motif at the same time.
MIRROR creates an atmospheric image of the 'in between', the nameless sphere between belonging and isolation.


«The characters in a tragedy, the air they breathe, the settings, are sometimes more absorbing than the tragedy itself, as are the moments before and afterwards, when the plot is at a standstill and the dialogue is silenced.» (Michelangelo Antonioni)
