Plasma - Film - 20min - 2023

présenté dans le cadre de l'exposition Panorama 25


14 September 2015 at 9.50am and 45 seconds, universal time.

The atomic clock stopped at 10 hours to the power of –23: a star has cooled to the point of extinction, a neutrino has collided with an atom, 8,000 people have joined together to have a party, a couple has split up, a woman has been reborn from the shadows

The machine sees everything. The thermal radiation of bodies, the red aura of memories. It knows every place, every story, every image. How do you talk about chance occurrences? How do you make what doesn’t speak, speak?

Louise Ernandez

Born in Toulouse in 1988, Louise graduated from the École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs in Paris in 2015, and is currently at Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains for the 2022–24 course. Photography and video are her principal mediums. The general theme of her research is embodied in the relationship between order and disorder, in the transition from one state to another, in which she perceives a potential that has something of the strange, the fantastic or even the poetic, which she seeks to render in images. At the heart of her practice is the benevolent way in which she looks at the world, which guides the production of her cinematographic explorations.
