Marie José Burki in discussion with Ive Stevenheydens 07.02.2018 - 19:00

In her video works the Swiss artist and photographer Marie José Burki explores how the visible can be classified, formatted and categorized. Burki sets out from observation and plays with audio-visual codes. The arbitrarily entitled A Film wants and doesn’t want to be ‘a film’. Conceived deliberately for a projection room—i.e. not for an exhibition space—A Film is entirely without narrative structure. It is rather a collage: an ebb and flow of impressions, images and sounds. Burki subverts the media relation between image and text: A Film links scenes and shots of a landscape to sound and music, and above all to a conversation between a woman and a man. They are talking about the state of the environment and the disappearance of species. About the recent discovery of a body in a glacier and about Glen Gould. About ‘non-coincidental coincidences’. A Film is an invitation to daydream, a reflective cocoon in which it is good to stay. (Screened every hour).
