FACING THE SKY

PROJECT

 

 

 

 

    

   

 

     
   
 

 

A   spatial atmosphere, a puzzling silence, an unfathomable blackness, an invasion of eyes, an uncommon and unexpected area, an exploration of the paradigm of vision,  a journey from sight to insight,  a shift from viewing to being viewed,  an invading depth, a profound perspective, a personal infinity or sheer infinity exemplified, a body in motion laying an eye on other eyes, a work keeping an eye on you, a vision expressed through everybody’s eyes, all this is part and parcel of what this installation is about. At first sight it looks like eyes gazing, you take a closer look and see a “room with a view”, eyes meeting eyes, eyes everywhere. We can deduct that the same eye is everywhere. We cannot distinguish if it is a man’s or a woman's eye. Its age is uncertain. We face a kind of a-temporal and anonymous eye, looking at eyes. Therefore we are lead to reflect on the function of sight and the notion of vision. In order to decipher the intent concealed by these eyes, we are invited to oppose the large variety of ways of looking: to gaze, to glance, to stare, to observe, to view, to scrutinize, to watch, to examine, to perceive, to foresee... However, some eyes are looking without any apparent emotion, as if neutral. They simply look like eyes looking with a floating attention.  Why is that? We all know that eyes are le most revealing screen of our emotions! That may be why, this purposely empty looking eye, duplicated everywhere, gives room for numerous interpretations evermore so since it enables a viewer to project any emotion into these eyes.   -   Cerj Lalonde
