A GUEST + A HOST = A GHOST - Film de Jorge Jácome


image de l'oeuvre A GUEST + A HOST = A GHOST de Jorge Jácome

De Jorge Jácome, film 2015, 15min

  • 2015 - Exhibition Panorama 17 au Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains, Tourcoing de Tourcoing (FR)

The title "A GUEST + A HOST = A GHOST " is a word play created by Marcel Duchamp for one of his works in 1953 .

I chose this title (almost like an objet trouvé) due to the way the film unfolds: a sum of frames composed by images and sounds that when placed together create other meanings. There is no story, instead there are connections that the film proposes, links whose origin is intuitive.

Using editing as a tool, we start solving equations until we reach a final result. We lose ourselves and find ouselves in the mystery of those connections. The film is almost mathematical, like a Duchamp game: constellations connect the dots of our bodies, the lines on our hands are the same as the ones carved in ancient stones, looks are lost in ghostly dreams, dead animals transform into storytellers.

All of this leads to an unlikely birth at the end.

These kind of images represent the idea of a crack in space and time as we know them. They allow the suggestion of something immaterial, the possibility of another dimension beyond the tangible.

Cinema, for me, is still a tool that enables us to see something that used to be invisible to the human eye - it represents a connection between the spiritual and the material, the physic and the psychic, between what exists and what haunts us.
