Marcellvs L. Rhizome 0778, 2004

Rhizome 0778 examines man’s becoming in the world, the constant flux that transforms the experience of an immediate and ephemeral present. This work is part of the ongoing series VideoRhizome begun in 2002, focusing on micronarratives, landscapes, minor acts, solitary characters confronted with time and the everyday, captured by a fixed camera in one single shot. These videos are underpinned by a temporality that seems to expand, slowing down to the point that time seems to stop altogether. This slowness that the artist instils into the work forces the spectator to concentrate his/her attention and coexist for a few minutes with the presented reality, without cuts, without advances, with no narrative over and above the duration itself of the action or event that reverberates before our gaze. His works are not gratuitous, nor do they disclose themselves at first sight to a hurried spectator, but instead reveal themselves slowly. Together with this singular temporality, what also structures these works is the distance from which the image and the focus are captured, adding an unreal air to the scene. In other words, the narrative skeleton of these pieces is connected to the place where the gaze that experiences the world is located.
