Portrait au vent

installation vidéo, ventilateur, cadre, bloc de ciment, dimensions variables, 2013

Portrait au vent illustre une rencontre improbable, mais poétique entre un ventilateur et un portrait en mouvement, projeté sur un grand cadre. Le bloc de ciment sur lequel l’écran est adossé évoque lourdeur et rudesse, en opposition au caractère immatériel de la projection vidéo et du vent que suggère la présence du ventilateur. Témoin de cette relation impossible, ce dernier est dépouillé de son hélice, ne produisant donc aucun vent.

 

Portrait au vent (Portrait in The Wind) evokes an impossible but poetic relationship between a fan and a video-projected portrait through a picture frame. It expresses the strange relationship between a common object and a video projection: the impossibility for the fan to blow the air of the portrait projected. The frame stands with a cinderblock, which represents  coarseness and heavyness, contrasting with the immateriality of the projection as well as the idea of the wind blowed, the human breath, in a sense. The fan itself seems to work, but it doesn’t make any wind (as the propeller has been removed), which accentuates the impossibility.
