180 Seconds of Lasting Images

  • About
    4500 Lambda Photo print on wood with velcro strip,
    408 x 265 cm, 2006

    180 seconds of Lasting Images is a work derived from the previous video installation : Lasting Images.

    We printed all the images of the super 8 film. Each photogram is treated as a separate entity, cut out and placed on a spiral forming a mosaic of 4500 vignettes. Each photogram, reduced to a size of 4 x 6 cm, to obtain good photo quality, is stuck on a Velcro strip, and seems to quiver.

    At first sight, the work appears to be a white abstract painting (2.68 x 4.08 meters in size) with some purple hues. The picture develops and reveals itself all at once in a temporality different from that of the film, allowing each viewer to grasp the images at his own rhythm. Through the whiteness, the opalescence, of the film a lasting image surges up again, an image is still there, as if it could not be completely shaded out, present yet ghostly. The reelA?a��a�?s phantom forms are reanimated permanently, affirming their refusal to disappear.
