Marcelline Delbecq, Silence Trompeur

Past: January 21 → March 7, 2015

For the past ten years, Marcelline Delbecq’s praxis has been slowly shifting from taking photos to taking notes. In her work, the issue of the image is incarnated in an essentially narrative form, a writing imbued with movements and freeze frames, past and present, fiction and reality.

For the show Silence trompeur/Deceptive Silence, the artist thwarts her own habits by dissociating photographs from words, and doing away with sound recordings (but without forgetting the voice) and thus creating from their respective silences that space which Jean-Luc Godard called: “The difference between a lock of hair and the dawn”—the space of the image.

The visual, mental, metaphorical, intangible, real and indescribable images will appear and disappear from work to work, fashioned by viewers’ imagination, memory and amnesia.

Two unusal interpretations of a reality which eludes itself.
