Retour D'un Repere (1979) 16mm, color, 17.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: art & artists

In this film procedures similar to those used in the two previously mentioned works are developed in a particular way. While the filmic operations are structured in relation to a limited space (a branch over a 19th Century duck pond), poetic measures pertaining to rhythm taken from literary rhetorics are introduced as part of the organizational orientation. Thus the film rests on a visual transposition of a 'pantoun,' a verse form which characteristically transforms itself gradually and continously in a precise manner. --R. L.
