LUX: A Video Installation by John Blouin

Activities and Events

A cast iron 35mm projector hanging in space. Digital lights guiding the way into the secret world of the projectionist’s booth. One voice, one trace. This work reveals the poetry and theatricality of the projection process. In the silence of the booth, we are reminded of the dismantling of a crucial era in film history, and of the gradual disappearance of the projectionist. Adding complexity to the story of film and light, it creates sculptural forms, a presence from a past. All affection, no nostalgia. 

A vernissage will take place on November 11, 6pm at RIDM Headquarters.
