Marcellvs L. | 52°30'50.13" N 13°22'42.05" E  (05/11/2008)

Opening: May 2, 6–9 pm
Gallery Weekend: May 3–4, 2008, 10 am – 7 pm
carlier | gebauer

The title of Marcellvs L.’s video installation consists of the geographical coordinates of the place where the images emerged. Five parallel screens show five views of corridors that are intersected by passageways. The cameras point in the same direction, but from five different fixed positions, show the corridors’ own axial symmetry. The views are disrupted at random intervals by people crossing and wandering through the corridors, shifting in scale because of the different camera’s positions. This activity does not follow any recognizable rhythm or pattern. The view of the place becomes an irritating abstraction, as suggested by the work’s title. The geographical data are just as precise as they are abstract, while the symmetry of the place restricts human movement to two dimensions: the people cross the camera’s field horizontally or they move about in the depths of the space. The formal consistency of the presentation is further broken on two temporal levels: the videos were recorded over a six months period, yet at different intervals. Furthermore, the different lengths of each video, from 8 to 40 min, result in overlapping within their duration.

In his work, Marcellvs L. creates a place that appears to exist solely in the present, but which cannot be situated in reality.

Catalogue Nam June Paik Award 2006  (06/12/2007)

"Singular Images" - Author: Solange Farkas

The Work of Marcellvs L. is extremely particular, his œuvre possesses the actuality to reproduce itself in a context of intense imagetic profusion. His very experimental production that belongs to the electronic arts’ universe attracts attention through its radical concept and through the intensity with which it associates philosophical concepts and the electronic image.

His work places itself in a zone of undiscernibility, which turns it inapprehensible by this or that audiovisual genre. It operates between documentary and experimental video, between the objective and the subjective and “between” these genres; it creates its own discursive universe, provoking extraordinary thoughts.

His videos relate themselves almost always to events and people that find themselves distant from the cameras and that do not know of their presence. Almost without recourse to editing, they show long sequences in black and white of anonymous people and their quotidian and that are subtly revealed through the operation of the digital zoon, a recurrent practice in the œuvre of the artist. However, instead of revealing reality, they end up turning it into an invention, a mirage.

The fixed camera offers a banal image, homemade, precarious: A man walks slowly, faraway. He comes closer whilst the camera follows him through a zoom out almost unperceivable. A flooding forms a river that crosses the street where he walks. The zoom turns the scene into a shaky, impressionist scene.
Naturally, without any hesitation the man starts to cross the river, slowly sinking, until it covers almost all of his body. He comes out of the water and continues to walk through the street and passes by the camera, without acknowledging its presence. The award winning video, man road river, ends when the man exits the scene, without credit, without subtitles.

The duration in his works is fundamental, as it amplifies the possibilities for image perception, tensioning even more the relations between the real and time, as observed byCezar Migliorin in his article in “Contratempo – Revista de Cinema”: “Different from the frequent chronological subversions that modern cinema brought to narratives, searching a chronic and not linear time, what happens here is that the linearity of the long shot comes into explicit conflict with the time organized into sequences of ellipses”.

To produce his videos, Marcellvs acts doubly as a patient and astute catcher of imagetic moments and as a meticulous interventionist by using all of the technological means possible to enhance the singularity of these moments. The contingency of the capture of the events is fundamental in the production of his videos. Revealing aesthetic events of great potency thanks to the alert gaze mediated by the camera and to the sophisticated sound treatment are a result of his musical training and partnership with the musical collective pexbaA.

Vernissage: Friday, 12th January 2007, 6 p.m.

We are delighted to announce Marcellvs L.’s first gallery exhibition at carlier | gebauer.

In his works Brazilian video-artist Marcellvs L. (1980, Belo Horizonte, Brazil) slows down time, creating a tangible physical staging of time. He sets the most commonplace objects in a filmic modus of duration, seemingly detached from reality: a rope moves in water (“untitle:rope”), a man walks along a street, wind blows through leaves, a boat moves slowly to and fro (“ebbing. flowing”).

Despite digital retouching processes, Marcellvs L. forges on with an aesthetic of the raw visual material, asserting, through the pixels and electrons that remain visible, its status as incidental, unfinished. The contingency of what is depicted or filmed is reiterated, subtly staged, on the representational level. This two-pronged approach underscores the process- and event-oriented nature of his films; nothing happens in these works, which have a radically anti-narrative structure. The actual event is the extension of time, while duration is the real protagonist. Marcellvs L. banks provocatively on the patience of the viewer, compelled to wait, only to discover the waiting has been in vain, realising ultimately that the focus is actually on a heightened form of his or her own attention
and perception.

Generating a permanent delay however has nothing to do with deprivation in the Beckettian sense of the term: the time that does not pass constructs a locus that is not just an interface between the unconscious and reality, but instead allows perception to take on physical form. This physicality, produced by the sound and rhythm of the films too, makes the videos into passages for the viewer, turns the films into a space of transit in which he or she is confronted with the potential of what is possible.

The videos focus on details devoid of context that determine the image. The minimal content contained in the minimalist film image – the videos border on abstraction and operate with vanishing contours – does not even allow representation to occur; it becomes one with the surface of the expanded time.

In the “VideoRhizome” series he has been working on since 2002 – the title highlights the reference to Deleuze/Guattari – Marcellvs L. has developed a concept of infection and action as components of his art. The 2,480 tapes sent at random to households around the world since 2002, with no indica-tion the sender’s identity, are rooted in the conviction that time is poli-tical. The uncontrollable circulation of the filmed extension of time, dis-seminated and spreading the risk of contagion as widely as possible,
relies on the subversive strategies of Actionism – and the outcome is unclear.

44th New York Film Festival  (12/04/2006)

The Tenth Annual Views from the Avant-Garde
A Special Presentation of the 44th New York Film Festival
October 7, 8 & 15, 2006

0778 man.road.river Marcellvs l, Brazil, 2004; 9m

man.road.river introduces a space that is viscous and indeterminate. An image is an aspic, and an adhesive in which an event is held in a optical resemblance that creates difference according to its luxuriance or degradation, its infidelities to the original event. There is always something missing as well as added, insinuated into the copy. The quality and character of movement in a moving image is redefined by its residence inside the given texture of the medium and the precise nature of the shot. Passing time moves with and against that texture and within the length of a shot builds up it’s own “cabin pressure.” Its natural measure attenuated by minute resistances and frictions and the grade of the slope, just as we might swim or climb depending on the medium we are confronting. This friction in turn perturbs or compounds the texture through its force and abrasion. In man.road.river different bodies and mediums come into contact. The man fords the shallows of an overflowing river and walks thorough a compressed depth of field without altering his course or increasing his limited awareness of the image to which he contributes a central energy. Elements cohere or at least cling in confusion and the witnessed event is rendered as something else, a version of what occurred and the concretization of a mirage, something that never occurred (externally) until it passed through the lens. The ephemeral saved and held in captivity is made to repeat itself in terms that are natural enough but unevenly translated. A recognizable shape but unidentified
man emerged from a walking chrysalis ( globular soft focused and near sepia )into greater definition and scale. The man continues unimpeded down the road. Out of frame, out of mind. – Ana Silviera
