CONTRE-JOUR

by Christoph GIRARDET & Matthias MÜLLER
2009 / 35mm / color / sound / 1S / 10' 40

The look with which we comprehend the world and which it casts back at us in response breaks up in Contre-jour into disquieting fragments. Blurs, flashes and stroboscope montages disintegrate reality into shadowy images that inflict pain on the eye. A spot light precisely cuts the individual out of the darkness. “I wish you could see what I see” remains futile hope. Blind spots gape between self-perception and the perception of others.
