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.
Noémie Goudal's fragile architectures, especially her series In Search of the First Line which depicts edifices from another epoch integrated into concrete industrial rubble, evoke modern ruins, post-apocalyptic constructions, the survival of a swallowed-up world.
Experimental cinema rarely ventures into the territory of science-fiction and parallel universes. Nevertheless, this is the subject of the films presented in this screening, which transgress narrative rules and cloud one's sense of time via three very distinct approaches: the use of old photographs in Wolkenschatten, the exploration of an abandoned futurist house in Bubble House and the discovery of four islands, which may or may not be illusory, by Ben Rivers.
