Clamouse

2003 — 11′43″ — DigiBeta

François Rouan’s first film allowed the painter to introduce the dimensions of time and movement into his work. The camera in Clamouse sweeps slowly across paintings and photographic work, exploring the feminine ‘cave’ (‘la grotte féminine’), imagining a journey through a sequence of contrasting lands (like the abandoned or excessively adorned chambers of an imaginary cave); at its core are the obscure images, unravelled by the play of the light.
