Program 26 April 7, 2007

In the video work of Jean-Baptiste Ganne, layers of meaning are created structurally through a fixed positioning of the camera, and through a series of referential ideas and signs. Our position, as viewers, becomes an intrinsic element of the work, as we are made conscious of our relationship to the projected image. Distantiation (the effect of distancing or estranging a spectator through means within the form or content of a text that challenge basic codes and conventions, and therefore mainstream ideological expectations) is made through presence of the artist in the work (Ragazzo, 2002), a reference to past artistic practice (4’33” (AMOR), 2007, which recalls John Cage’s 4’33” of 1952), and signs or words which remind us that we are indeed viewers: ‘VIDEO’ (désoccupée, 2007).

Jean-Baptiste Ganne
Ragazzo
2002, 2:42 min. (video, color, sound)

A bucolic backdrop lends a stark contrast to a startling masked figure, that of Carlo Giuliani, activist killed during the demonstrations in Genoa, Italy in July of 2001. The artist moves to and fro in the foreground, attempting to make a photographic portrait of Giuliani. Space is defined – literally – by the artist’s position to the subject, and figuratively by the position of the viewers to the potent historical image of Giuliani.

4’33” (AMOR)
2007, 4:33 min. (video, color, sound)
Proportion and spectacle create a deafening tension in Ganne’s 4’33”(AMOR). Attention is diverted from the action on the playing field during a soccer match and shifted instead to the growing frenzy of the spectators.

(Backroom projection)
désoccupée (loop)
2007, 10:18 min. (video, color)
A blurred and pixilated image of a woman moving in and out of the frame, she stares at an unknown source, swaying to and fro seductively.
