Ben Pointeker & Julia Lazarus
a lucia, captioned with a dedication, is composed of long photographic landscape shots that lay
open the skeleton of a narration. Actors appear in fragments, beyond a recognisable social or local framework, like traces of a (film) narrative.
The images, time delayed and sequential individual impressions, produce and visualize various
states of emptiness, a concentration of the senses which is both idyllic and agitated. These images have been imbued with stormy elements and a forced graininess, while theintermittent crackling soundtrack supports both density and emptiness. The individual subjects do not show causality; the text comprises the event of the depiction rather than the traces of its circumstances. At the same time, they break out in an unreal moment of openness, a beauty which has been liberated from practical interests and systems, and produce anxiety in the presence of irreversibility.
