Silence is sexy
De Alexandre Del Torchio, installation 2009
Visitors enter an installation that seems selfcontained, with all the power of the final sequence of Robert Aldrich's movie Kiss me Deadly, made in 1955. With this device, i place the viewer in the center of a sensory and mental experience that has a direct effect on his or her bearings. In a more direct way still, the hero of Rear Window attains a mental image, not simply because he is a photographer, but because he is in a state of physical impotence: he is to an extent reduced to a pure optical situation. Gilles Deleuze, L'image-mouvement This creates a void, "a black hole" that allows visitors access to a different space-time. An instance's slippage; a possible "elsewhere" that conjures up the fantastic. An interval creating an atmosphere between fiction and reality.
