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. ’Flash Back’ was made from simple web cam images, on a weekly drive from Brussels to Valenciennes. An intangible barrage of light stimuli from the highway gives an impression of a flight.
