HISTOIRES DE PORTRAIT

 

Heterogeneous by nature, this exhibition brings together portraits, namely usage of cinematographic art to allow us to see and hear, like never before, the link between a voice and gestures, a body and phrasing, a scene and stories. It’s also the ‘zero degree’ of cinema, (we remember Eustache’s grandmother opening up to him in Numero Zero) and an archiving mission, a telling sign of great ambition.  It is not a question of hoping to explain anything, nor ‘record’ anyone, nor ‘seize’ and gather a force which doesn’t cease to open out into a firework behind a person. It is rather a question of allowing the enigma to increase, to grow in it’s mystery, and it’s fascination. It’s a question of allowing ourselves to become accomplices without any familiarity with each other, nor with the distant, faraway, and unknown. As Nietzsche once said, it is an exercise in admiration.

FOCUS NAZLI DINÇEL
One the one hand, Nazli Dinçel takes inspiration from experimental cinema’s historical techniques: she uses 16mm film which she hand-processes by scratching the rolls, etching words to achieve the effect of a slight tremble between perfection and imperfection. On the other hand, her short films are autobiographical fragments that combine the themes of immigration, desire, sexuality and love. The minimalism of her language and repetitiveness of her texts bring to mind the rhetorics of fables.
