In his work Claude Cattelain tries to grasp the essence in the volatile. His short and personal flashes of astonishment and fragility offer a striking image of a passage from one place to another or a shift in frames of mind. Impulsive video sequences, not without a sense of humour, at times evoking an actual spatial escapism or on other occasions recording coincidental or purposeful emotional turning points. In ’Combustions’ blurry traces of bluish sparkles and rarefied gases slowly lead to the ignition of miniscule fire sculptures.
