SURVIVAL OF FORMS - TEST OF THE GAZE

A cycle of screenings curated by Light Cone and Le BAL

How do we perceive what we observe? If no gaze nor interpretation is definitive, the work of Batia Suter pushes us to readjust our tenets. Confronted with the profusion of collected images, the eye is suspended in hesitation. Certainly, it recognizes the representations, but the montage between images creates a hiatus, an enigma that must be deciphered. Using experimental and artist films partially taken from the Light Cone catalogue, the screenings elaborate on three consecutive stages of Batia Suter's practice: collection, montage, and the test of the gaze.

Tickets: 9,50 euros (full) / 7,50 euros (reduced)
Screening + exhibition at Le BAL Batia Suter, Radial Grammar : 11,50 euros combined ticket to be purchased beforehand at Le BAL

TEST OF THE GAZE

Tuesday 29 May 2018 at 20h00 - 11.50 € (séance + exposition au BAL), 9.50 € (plein tarif), 7.50 € (tarif réduit)


Paying attention to things reveals a world in itself. Whether working with architecture, precise detail, or the progression of shots, each of the films (most of which are usually presented in a gallery context) explores the close relationship between cinema, space and light, a place where a cinema of attention constructs itself, from where emerges material on the threshold of perception, like in Tacita Dean's Providence. Proceeding by correspondences, Antoinette Zwirchmayr creates a visual language whose basic elements – the vegetal, the mineral, the corporal – combine according to a logic which seems to obey an intimate and secret code; Charlotte Moth composes infinite combinations of atmospheres using ever-renewed cinematographic tools; João Maria Gusmao & Pedro Paiva convoke objects and phenomena according to considerations of a philosophical, or even metaphysical, order to reexamine, not without humor, the terrain of the real.
