FLASH 01, 2009. Vus de quelques images provenant de la projection de diapo.







Flash 01




The device of Virginie Gouband, slides which are shown at an accelerated rhythm, immerse the spectator in a new experience of images, closer to a sensory experience than a visual contemplation. Flash 01 bombards us with all kinds of pictures: poetic snapshots, reproductions of images (from television, advertising...), abstract patterns... Each photograph, seen separately, presents a «punctum», a detail from the random which attracts our eyes and causes projections within us. But those visions quickly become confused with each other via the afterimage. The caught image is in a perpetual stream, constantly appearing or disappearing, viewed and remembered at the same time. Beyond a pure photographical body of work, Flash 01 is an installation of contemporary art exploring and questioning our way of viewing.
