L’Heure mystérieuse — Marion Tampon-Lajarriette

Past: November 16 → December 22, 2012

A mysterious community walks in large and obscure rooms, groping in search of a vision with some of their flashlights. The place, which is a museum, is rediscovered on its hidden face as a place of fear, the invisible and the unknown. For her second solo exhibition at Galerie Dix9, Marion Tampon-Lajarriette presents her latest video and photographic creations issued from new approaches of her main questioning : the image and its relationships with memory and dreams.

The photographs of the series MoCLT are strange images captured in the flow of three infrared cameras that were filming a performance visit at the Mamco in Geneva, during the night. They are ambiguous traces related to a time of darkness, the failure of the visible and the significance of the ghosts in the collective imagination.

Using infinite travelling shots and incrustation in the video series Erehwon or tricks from the film techniques in the years 1930-1960 in the series Antichtones, those works mark a new stage in the approach of the image and its haunting power over reality.
