‘Contrecarré’ is a video directed by groupe 50/40, whose members are Charles Dijck, Alain Géronnez, Réginald Stokart, Gerard Thèves and Paul Van Re. The artists experiment with space, sizes, a geometric pattern and with a lot of birds. The first square is made out of a measuring rod, lying on the grass. The second square is filled with bread. This second figure gets destroyed by a peacock and some pigeons that are pecking at the slices of bread and start throwing them around. This destructive act continues with square four, five and six, the only difference being the growing size of the squares and the shrinking size of the pieces of bread.
