SEE THE SEA OF UNREACHABILITY

Video duration: 10'

Texte by Simone Dompeyre, Traverse video in French HERE

The RuckenFigur is litterally « the Back Figure », a concept largely used by Caspar David Friedrich in his paintings. The painter represents the landscape with its viewer. The image testifies of the romantic impossibility of representing the world.

In the video the main character is the Spectator. He/she attempts to understand his/her posture in that framed world. He/she encounters and speaks with other Figures that constitutes as well, the world.
Landscape is the framed reality of its beholder. Horizon is the landscape's eye. It looks straight the ones that stands before it. Its spectator is limited by his field of view, his unability of going beyond.
