Opening and «Je vais vous raconter une histoire de fantômes» Publication launch on Wednesday, March 29, at 8 pm

This exhibition focuses on Nelson Henricks’ video and film production. The aim of this retrospective (which I wish to be open-ended rather than conclusive, process rather than arrest…) is to encourage an interaction between the works, in order to enable the picturing of an approach expressed in a body of work which never ceases to become more complex. One of the important aspects of this work is unquestionably the interweaving, at once reiterated and reformulated, of the themes of communication, of identity and of something that could be referred to as an “invisibility” (a notion that will certainly need to be redefined, even it it entails materializing it somewhat). This intertwining is particular in that it allows the image to raise the question of identity, most specifically of the constitution of the self in its relationship to the other, by calling upon a kind of “detour” which runs through the non-perceived, the imperceptible, the anonymous, the ghostly… or else, the known which suddenly reveals itself as strange, and above all, foreign. One of the key questions will therefore be: What is invisible according to Henricks.
