Raymond Hains & Jacques Villeglé, Pénélope, 1950-1954, 13'05''
Cinematographic silent movie, original 16 mm, black/white and color. (Tinguely Museum Basel 2014/15)
Dans le film Pénélope les planches sont composées de rectangles de couleurs vives entrecoupés de noir tantôt
directement peints, tantôt découpés puis collés sur de grandes feuilles de papier rectangulaires, qui sont passées
à travers le prisme des verres cannelés et mises en mouvement dans un film. Les verres déforment les rectangles
pour créer une série de losanges et de triangles. Raymond Hains affirme qu'ils reprennent motifs et couleurs des
manches de La blouse roumaine de Matisse : points et grilles, utilisation du rouge, du bleu, du noir et du jaune.

Aldo Tambellini, BLACKOUT (1965)
Aldo Tambellini is a pioneer experimental film and video artist. This film, like an action painting
by Franz Kline, is a rising crescendo of abstract images. Rapid cuts of white forms on a black
background supplemented by an equally abstract soundtrack give the impression of a bombardment
in celestial space or on a battlefield where cannons fire on an unseen enemy in the night.

Carsten Nicolai, Spray, 2004, 8:00
spray is a room installation consisting of a folded, stealth-shape seating area and a video that can be seen from both sides of the projection screen. the 8-minute loop of the video shows the process of pixels accumulating, setting up orders, building up patterns, modelling moirés, decaying into fragments and dissolving again.
the idea behind the work is to show that although our communication system tends to atomize information, the original sense remains. the stealth forms seen in the video of spray dissolve into particles, which still contain enough information to regain the original forms again and build up a cycle of persistent repetition. the main metaphor of spray is the mechanism of masking and concealing – of stealth. it shows the contradictory essence to produce and secure information as well as hide and absorb it.
