Dans la vision peripherique du temoin (In the peripheral vision of the witness)

1986, 13:33 min, b&w and color, sound

Shot on location at Versailles and in Paris, Dans la vision peripherique du temoin unfolds as a provocative inquiry into the psychological and cultural apparatus of vision — seeing and being seen, voyeurism and narcissism, the gaze and the self. The screen is divided into three vertical panels, creating a formal composition of simultaneous imagery. Collapsing public and private vision, Odenbach presents a costume drama in the palace at Versailles, views of everyday Parisian life, a philosophical dialogue between a young and an old man, urban architecture, Hollywood film scenes. Within the triptych, the artist himself is seen running through lanes of traffic. This work was originally produced as a three-channel, multi-media installation for the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.

With: Jean-Pierre Daroussin, Claude-Antoine Leroy. Camera: Marcel Odenbach. Script: Michele Perbet. Music: Bach, Gershwin, Liszt, Simply Red, Bob Moses. Sound: Nicolas Joly. A production of Centre Georges Pompidou, Musee National d'Art Moderne.
