PUZZLE

PUZZLE

2′ 45”, colour, sound (2007)

In PUZZLE there are three different stories in three layers that overlap in the same work: the sound belongs to a girl who reads a passage by Proust; the visuals show that girl reading on a sofa and, in the same room, the struggle of a man trying to finish a puzzle for which he cannot find the last piece. Once he does, the piece does not fit into the empty space. Finally, a band with a scrawling text by Lacan on the lower part of the screen completes the third layer of this work. The three layers (sound, visuals and text) are interrelated, but they are impossible to be perceived at the same time. The spectator is compelled to choose on which part of the work is going to focus her attention. The perception of PUZZLE is then also fragmentary, and to have an idea of the whole one should watch it two or three times (but the whole remains still an idea, as it is not possible to grasp everything at once).
