Inconsistencies  (09/11/2013)

ALEXANDER KLUGE: The cosmos is cold.
HEINER MÜLLER: Dreamless.
ALEXANDER KLUGE: Dreamlessly cold.

Marcellvs L.’s work moves on the line separating presence from absence, the consistency of reality from its inconsistency. It indicates the space of undecidability between 0 and 1 or, to put it in philosophical terms, between nothingness and reality. Infinitesimal calculus studies the infinitely small (infinitesimal) intervals in the various fields of mathematics. I think that Marcellvs’s work does the same; but with the means of art. We can distinguish between two registers, the register of finitude (which is constituted reality, the world of real numbers) and the register of infinitude (which describes the unreality of zero or of nothingness). Translated into Lacanian categories, this would be the difference of reality from the real. Everything is decided by the differentiation between these two orders, of which the first marks consistency, the second, inconsistency.

I believe that Marcellvs ultimately insists on the undecidability of the register of consistency from that of inconsistency. Time and again, his films point toward the spectral dividing line that ties these registers together as much as it separates them from each other. Hence the ghostly streak of his work. The ground and the groundlessness of the abyss coincide. Reality and unreality are crossed, and as they cross, they engender a phantomlike interstitial zone that lets our certainties falter. I would accordingly speak of the implicit ontology in Marcellvs’s work. Ontology occupies itself with being and with presence.
It does so—already in Parmenides, for example—by distinguishing the sphere of being from the sphere of nothingness. Being and nothingness, presence and absence are fundamental categories of ontology. Now, twentieth-century philosophy, taking its cue from Nietzsche, articulated itself as a philosophical critique of metaphysics by calling ontology in question. Derrida’s deconstruction of logocentric metaphysics is a deconstruction of the ontology of substance and subject correlative to it. It proceeds by interlocking the category of presence with that of absence. Presence is always also absence. There is presence only as absentic presence. The category of disappearance becomes central. Deleuze, for his part, speaks of becoming. Both Derrida and Deleuze invoke Maurice Blanchot, whose literature (like several important texts and films by Marguerite Duras) opens up a spectral space that is the space of undecidability between being and nothingness. It is the phantomlike zone of a general ontological instability.

Reality proves to be a promise of consistency that is broken. Reality is a fiction, a narrative. It is a sort of fabric full of wholes, continually translucent to its own impermanence. Deleuze called this fabric an immanence level; in Wittgenstein, it is called form of life or language-game. Lacan speaks of the symbolic order. All are floating architectures strung like fragile nets over the abyss of inconsistency, which Deleuze, with Nietzsche, calls the chaos. Marcellvs’s works point into that chaos. They do so with great precision.

"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.
