"En Apesanteur" is a looping video
featuring a young woman in a white cube. The woman articulates her movements in response to the
space, which at times she resists and to which at times she surrenders.
The work is conceived to be presented as
a projection on a white wall,onto which it creates an artificial and immaterial
space which expands the wall's bidimensional surface. The large scale of the
projection is such that also the visitors' physicality factor into the
perception of the said space.
The camera movements and the
post-production -limited to vertical and horizontal mirroring of the footage-
make the existence of the camera conspicuous, thus highlighting the presence of
the camera's eye and of the viewer's eye. In this way, a shift in the nature of this seemingly
private space of seclusion takes place, as the latter becomes dependent on the
artificial constructions of its image and of its fruition.
"Elasticity" is the common
denominator of the relationship between body and space as mediated by the
camera, since the three elements engage in reciprocal topographies. The
movements of both the body and the camera work as kinetic activators of the
space, while the absence of sound is in itself a sonic aspect, which
contributes to the construction of this real-but-virtual realm.
should ideally be projected on a white wall, having one side of the video departing
form one of the wall’s edges, either in contact with the floor or with the wall’s
left or right vertical limit.
