Should I title this installation?
Didactically, as A Window Closed onto a World? In the edit and in the frame it refuses to be just an installation and claims a documentary dimension, too. A title like a finger pointing at the cinematographic aspect of the installation.
Or lyrically, as a Laboratory of Absurd but Salutary Questions? It is, first of all, the place of an encounter between two visual artists and, by extension, a laboratory for the encounter between different media. Facing the screens the video maker, choreographer and viewers converse, while behind the windows the results of their experiments are played out.
Or again, referentially, as Contrapposto... and all that jazz? This conveys the dialectical tone of the exchanges and the desire to subvert the codes of sculpture. But no.
Or, perhaps, enigmatically: ... To Master, or, Rather, to Know? But this title immediately poses the question of the legitimacy of recording tools with regard to the body and the meaning of “dwelling.”
In the end, none of these titles seems satisfying, for they merely offer narrow frames for the whole that a laboratory can generate. Instead, then, it is the oxymoron Phenomenology of Virtuality that will take its place on the labels, where it will attempt to effectively give a glimpse of all its rejected fellow titles.
