Séance Light Cone - Le BAL / April 7, 2015

DETAILS

To coincide with Mark Lewis, Above and Below, Light Cone proposes a programme of experimental films and artists' films from its catalogue and various collections. Screenings revolve around three axes and build on the elements which Mark Lewis accentuates in his work: an interest in formal invention in film […], whether by pioneers, the avant-garde or Hollywood; rejection of cinema's narrative and temporal illusion; and a fascination with the purely visual aspects of film that play with our perception.

Mark Lewis films the modern city as the setting for interactions between ever-shrinking private space and public space, itself increasingly encroached on by the demands of today's economy. Through careful observation of details that reveal a certain state of society, Gerard Holthuis and Guy Sherwin propose enigmatic portraits of two vast metropolises, Hong Kong and San Francisco. Not without humour, Jordi Colomer considers the pressures on the individual of urban sprawl. His aerial film shows how Mexico City has grown through the construction of endless rows of identical housing units. For Francis Alÿs, a walk through one of the world's most dangerous cities can become a metaphor for the human condition, echoing questions raised by Adrian Paci.
