Marcellvs L. at the Berlinische Galerie  (06/17/2011)

Over the course of one year, the IBB video lounge will present 12 artists who have drawn attention to themselves with innovative use of the media film and video in recent years. Documentary approaches will appear alongside strategies which reflect on and question the medium itself. Visual aesthetic experiments are also crucial to the works of those artists invited to participate.

Ouverture – Marcellvs L.
by Rodrigo Moura

For a number of years, Marcellvs L.’s first video works only circulated from hand-to-hand, via DVD copies produced by the artist himself. Since that time and still today, the artist sends these copies by mail to addresses randomly chosen in the telephone book. The method he uses to title these works is likewise a throw of the dice, the same one he employs to select the addresses that will receive the videos – an open and independent strategy that has a lot to say about his economy of means. “VideoRhizomes” is the title the artist gave to this ongoing series initiated in 2002. The imponderability of time and its political implications seem to be the primary motives behind Marcellvs L.’s works as well as their original mode of circulation.

“Independence means urgency”, the artist once said to me. This means that he often shoots his video alone, using a high-definition portable camera. Once on site, as in the best cinéma verité tradition, the artist captures somewhat mysterious scenes in which lonesome characters are experientially confronted with the passage of time in big cities or in the countryside. In other pieces images come from intriguing shots of the landscape. For Marcellvs L., being on site is a significant part of the work, a process that often results in the unexpected, because in seeking one thing he sometimes ends up finding another. In almost all his videos, there is, however, a radical transformation of the real in the way the images are captured. This could be on account of where the camera finds itself in relation to the scenes (either very close or very
far away) or on account of a highly charged pictorial presence. Despite the resources of digital post-production, it is by the way the camera reads the world that his videos create personal and outstanding vision of the real. His moving images are hypnotic mirages directly captured from the world, mediated by radical camera filters: either highly grained or pixilated monochrome renderings that, at times, literally dissolve before the lens.

In one of his first videos 0314 (2002), images of rain falling on a roof are slowly revealed in high-contrast black-and-white (recorded with colour), producing a happenstance graphic quality as the sound becomes violently louder and louder. For his works, post-production of sound is also key, in collaboration with sound artist João Marcelo. In another video, 0667 (2003), a man is depicted slowly walking down a road, while cars continue on in high speed in the lane across from him. It is only just recently that his work has begun to circulate in the art world, notably in the last São Paulo Biennial, where it was prominently presented, or in a solo show in his home town Belo Horizonte’s Museu de Arte da Pampulha, where a compilation of more than 2 hours was screened on a loop, featuring more than 10 videos. In his more recent works, like the video-installation ebbing.flowing (2006), also shown at the São Paulo’s Biennial, a spatial-sensorial aspect is stressed, indicating new and more complex
possibilities for the relation between camera and projection. In this two-channels synchronized video installation, images of a boat on a beach are taken from another boat while the ocean simultaneously ebbs and flows in each of the screens. What interests the artist here is the loss of stable ground and the sublimation of the tripod: suggestively shooting to the sensibility of the moving waves. Finally, as he said, “However minor it may seem, every aesthetic act is both political and ethical.”


Rodrigo Moura is an art critic and curator at Inhotim Centro de Arte Contemporânea in Minas Gerais, Brazil

Press release

Marcellvs L. | Wer mich lenkt ist das Meer | Arch 51, 52

13th January – 17th February 2007, Tuesday to Saturday, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
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.
