SUPERPOSITION

This work is the result of a collaboration between Filip Francis, Luc Deleu and Wout Vercammen. It is an early experiment with image in image, split screen, zoom in, fading, overlaps and other techniques that made the medium video—just out of the cradle in the 1970s—so exciting. The three artists took the camera and set out with great enthusiasm. The result is a merry, sometimes comical, but above all moving, touching video. Against the background of classical music and opera, we see the artists Luc Deleu and Wout Vercammen pulling silly faces. In the editing the faces have been subjected to a variety of techniques. A playful pioneering piece of video dating from the history of Belgian video art.
