4 POINTS LIMITÉS

'4 points limités / La caméra est reliée au magnétoscope par un câble de 100 mètres’ is one of Jacques-Louis Nyst’s earlier experiences with the medium and one of the few videos of the first Nyst period not to use a canvas-like white surface as a background. Teapots, hats, eggs, etc, are here replaced by images of gates and fences in the wilderness. A female voice indicates their exact location : the first is situated 100 meters south; the next 100 meters west; the following 100 meters east; and finally, the last one 100 meters north. These four points are the precise boundaries (or limits) of the Nysts’ video universe.
