Lucile Desamory, A l'ombre de l'hyperboloïde (2004)

The films of Lucile Desamory create a personal and often emotional world from the elements she gleaned in cinema and pop culture and in her own universe of imagination and dreams. In A l’ombre de l’hyperboloïde, she has woven self-produced pieces of film and animation into an associative wickerwork, evoking childlike sensations of astonishment and dismay. The result is a world of reaching tentacles, hovering eyes and dancing organs, surrealist and impervious. To indicate how one should interpret these images, she borrows the words of Belgian mystic Marguerite Porete (1250 – 1310): “comprenez cela comme il faut, et non d’une façon humaine”.
