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

18th Impakt Festival 29.03 - 01.04  (03/27/2007)

The 18th Impakt Festival will be held from the 29th of March through to the 1st of April 2007 with various locations in the city of Utrecht staging a wide variety of sound and media arts. Like in previous editions, the Impakt Festival offers visitors a startling mix of music, film and video, extraordinary exhibitions, discussions, panel meetings and presentations of internet art. The artists represented with their work at the Impakt Festival explore the boundaries of the audiovisual media while looking for new prospects and applications. In their work, the represented artists express their critical view on our media landscape and reflect on our visual culture in a characteristic and discerning way.


0778 man.road.river, Marcellvs L. (Brazil, 2004, 9:27 min)
In order to produce his images, Marcellvs seems to be in an ambiguous zone, combining attention, belief, and detachment. The contingency of capturing these events (or near-events) is fundamental to the production of the videos. Nevertheless, there is no belief in the illusion that just looking at the world would be enough for it to reveal itself.

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
