Summary :
"There are no images without light, and yet, in the media maelstrom sucking up everything in its path with its phenomenal power of attraction, doesn't everything risk being reduced to a light without name or sign? On the wall, a video displays a series of luminous circles of calligraphy, which seem to tear away from the dark heaviness of the background. They rotate in a chaplinesque motion, imperative and unrelenting in one direction, then the other, faster and faster until the calligraphy words, which most of us don't understand, disappear before our eyes, giving way to a sort of universal image of white and light. Are we witness to the dissolution of signs that leads to a universal ideal? Or the disappearance of knowledge in a spectral void?" Marie Deparis-Yafil Traduction : Caroline Rossiter
