[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Jean-Paul Thomin — Un musée à I’aube

Artist Statement


This work (The Museum at Dawn) offers a virtual visit to the heart of the relation between the individual and his perception of reality. The film, constructed from a group of visual references, imitates the scheme of a real museum with gallery visits and workshops. The excursion offers the revelation of the parallel space of time which lends a colour to all the decor discovered by the visitor. This mirror-visit underlines the secret of the connections we maintain with time. An obligatory yet denied intermediary of our relationship with existence, time defines emotion and the point of origin of each of our acts. It is the true curator of this little museum of an unknown soul.
