Les persiennes et les sortilèges - Installation
Someone's behind those Venetian blinds. A finger slips over an edge and pulls them down. Two fingers, four. A pair of lips mouthing your name. Then eyes appear from a darkened room, seeking a connection with those on the other side. Who is it? And how does he or she know you, standing at the window, if she's only a ghost of a ghost.
A seductive and mysteriously interactive work veiling and unveiling perceptions. Who is the seer and who or what the seen?
At the Goethe Institute / La Nuit blanche, Alkemie animates the windows with responsive video-performers haunting video-persiennes.
