temps reel

Rebacca Bournigault, 1994

In this video installation the viewer is invited to sit on a chair in a dark room and then gets in front of is own image magnified. Other viewer are witnesses of a portrait, not recorded, that is happening in real time. They also have the possibility to be the next models. In this installation we are confronted to our image as the other see us, it is different from a mirror as left and right are not inverted, it is an experience of the self.
