Ensemble d'oeuvres 2005 - 2008

The complex social, political and religious ramifications of Paul Chan’s works unfold gradually. In a protean oeuvre ranging from print to moving images, he works on the art/politics nexus in a way that always includes a sculptural aspect : by turning the traditional image-projection screen into a window, Chan has radically transformed the tradition of video and film narrative. In this exhibition, the story unfolds on the floor as if the image and the light were filtering in through a window from outside (1st Light and 5th Lightare obvious illustrations of this) – the world flickers away in front of us like an apocalyptic shadow theatre. Similarly, in the series True types, Chan plays with text, with language and the evident lack of understanding of language, with the impossibility of communication – as if language had ceased to be a universal and had become irretrievably self-centred and personal.
