I AM LOOKING AT A ROOM
TRIPOT & Laurent Trezegnies
"I AM LOOKING AT A ROOM" is the result of a collaboration between the audiovisual collective TRIPOT (Marius Packbier & Aïlien Reyns) and the visual artist Laurent Trezegnies.
The work departs from a video that is deprived from its representative function through changes in the pixel structure. The organizational pattern of the original video transforms into an an incommunicative mass of distinct elements that is unable to convey something beyond itself.
The abstract composition is connected to reality through the voice-over. Based on an ambiguous oral description, the spectator has to create his own subjective meaning.
Laurent Trezegnies creates the sculptural installation in response to the exhibition space and audiovisual works. It is a sculptural materialization of the concept, at the same time more concrete and ephemeral then it‘s audiovisual form.
TRIPOT is a Brussels based audiovisual art collective founded by Aïlien Reyns, Marius Packbier and Martina Melilli that explores the intersections between art, academic research and social practice.
