VOLATILE BODIES - PORTRAIT OF A PLACE: SCULPTURE

VOLATILE BODIES: a Le BAL/ LIGHT CONE screening, in conjunction with the exhibition CINQUIÈME CORPS taking place at Le BAL from February 12th to Mai 8th, 2016.

Building from experimental and artist films found in Light Cone's catalog as well as other collections, the screenings explore three paths of reflection suggested by Noémie Goudal's photographic series: the presence of unexpected constructions within natural landscapes, a fascination for the celestial, and the creation of a mini-universe that purposely obscures our perception of time.

PORTRAIT OF A PLACE: SCULPTURE

Tuesday March 08, 2016, 20:15


Noémie Goudal's photographic sculptures integrate themselves into unexpected landscapes, which thereby acquire ambiguous status. These natural spaces take on the qualities of strange decors, falling out of context and becoming somehow emptied. In Transit of the Megaliths, Nicholas Brooks deploys a similar strategy: geometric figures travel across the English countryside, echoing the sculptural elements imbued with life in the favelas and the desert landscapes of the Argentine artist Miguel Angel Ríos. We also find this ambiguous relationship with reality in the work of Ana Vaz, where architectural ruins from a megalomaniac construction project evoke the excesses of Ancient Egypt with its pyramids.
