IN THE THICKNESS OF TIME - CINEMATIC SENSATIONS

Film series on the occasion of the exhibition Barbara Probst - The Moment in Space (10 May - 25 August 2019) at Le BAL

Shot reverse shot, proliferating points of view, the declination and iteration of an action: just a few of the various protocols employed by the filmmakers in this film series to represent a single moment or a unity of space in a manifold way. Time becomes matter, sensation, kinetic energy, challenging the spectator in his attempt to decipher the real.

Made in 1969, <-->, also known as Back and Forth, is a monument of Canadian Structural cinema. Spanning fifty-two minutes, the film is composed only of a series of panoramic shots filmed in a classroom whose windows open to the street, creating within the film a tension between the inside and the outside. Continuing his work on camera movement, be it optical or mechanical (an object of study inaugurated with Wavelength, 1967), here Michael Snow constructs a fascinating spatio-temporal exploration, in which the rhythm of the metronome, used to define the different speeds of the camera’s movement, makes itself felt at every moment, leading the spectator into a state of cinematographic trance.
Other spaces are explored in the program, by way of stategies that employ a splitting of the cinematographic frame; in yann beauvais’s double-projection piece Sans titre 84 it is the Arc de Triomphe, while in Tomonari Nishikawa’s Tokyo – Ebisu, the Ebisu neighborhood of Tokyo.
