Séance Light Cone - Le BAL / January 12, 2016

POUSSIÈRES D’IMAGES : FORCES TELLURIQUES

À l’occasion de l’exposition DUST, Histoires de poussières, d'après Man Ray et Marcel Duchamp, Light Cone propose une programmation de films expérimentaux et de films d’artistes issus de son catalogue et de diverses collections.

À partir de trois axes, les séances s’appuient sur ce que David Campany commissaire de l’exposition cherche à mettre en évidence dans les nombreuses œuvres sélectionnées : une fascination pour les forces de la nature, l’étrangeté de formes à la frontière de la perception et les mystérieuses beautés issues du monde minéral.

FORCES TELLURIQUES

« From my site you can see mountains with horizontal lines where the old lake bit into the rock as it was going down. The mirages are extraordinary; you can see whole mountains hovering over the earth, reflected upside down in the heat. The feeling of timelessness is overwhelming... After camping alone in the desert awhile, I had a strong sense that I was linked through thousands of years of human time with the people who had lived in the caves for so long » Nancy Holt. Ranging from the Racetrack Playa geological site near Death Valley (Adrien Missika) to the volcano of Mt Stromboli (Laurent Grasso) and the Great Salt Lake in Utah (Nancy Holt), these films explore nature's deep driving forces. They too are proof that man cannot afford to cut himself off from the environment he lives in.
