Lascaux

2017, 16mm film, color, 45s

«In spite of the technological evolution, the ritual of cinema - the magic of its lantern - or that of any artistic creation, persists: like the men of Lascaux, we have a view on the original night and we guess shapes in the stones. Our relationship of intimacy with the world is such that the only way to translate it is to experience a secret, to live in depth an 'enigma to be solved'. In the mental cave or in the cinema, the unintelligible is at the heart, so that we always have our eyes wide open to images ; proof that we keep always intact inside ourselves, a pure desire for wonder.»

Léa Bismuth Art critic and curator
