The_gate_valve - Installation de Brice Morel Brice Morel
De Brice Morel, installation 2009
My artistic work has led me to research into narrative forms drawn from film. the video installation THEGATEVALVE is an "interactive B movie." inspired by science fiction, and more ironically by video games, it is designed to immerse viewers in a post-industrial bucolic comedy sketch. The tableau - vivant (a kind of LCD altarpiece) -- is dark-hued; the conclusion of the script disastrous: a family picnic that turns out very nastily. In this exercise in figurative and musical editing deploying simple motifs, the viewers -- the driving force behind the events in the story -- participate in a composition at once random and open, but irremediably closed in on itself. it falls to each participant to find his or her role.
