Dirk Braeckman, Belgian Pavilion, Biennale Arte 2017 - Curator Eva Wittocx - 13.05—26.11.2017 x

16mm-loop - V.R.-P.A.(2)-96

This 16 mm black and white film consists of a travelling over Dirk Braeckman’s picture V.R.-P.A. What is suggested here is a kind of lag in the experience of time: on the one hand there is the time of the photograph, on the other the time of the travelling over this image. And above all it is this woman’s inpenetrable and unreadable face which seems to be scanned cinematicly. What do we see? Is she crying? Laughing? Is she dead?
