Ice Crean - Phaidon Press 2007 p. 232-235  (06/12/2007)

"Marcellvs L." - Author: Lisette Lagnado

Marcellvs L’s method is 'to dilate time'. The expression refers directly to the philosophical universe of Henri Bergson, whose important reflections on duration and intuition have frequently served as a basis for approaching the cinematic moving image. Like Cao Guimarães (see page 128-131), Marcellvs L’s videos usually feature a solitary person who walks: on the road, in water or going nowhere on a gym treadmill. In his works Marcellvs L imposes a slowness to the scene. This focus on duration is a response against what Guy Deboard termed the 'society of the spectacle'.

Conscious of our alienation in a society where we are regularly bombarded by imagery, Marcellvs L. offers a rare antidote. He produces work that expands our senses towards new perceptions through emphasizing the body. His works maintain an undecipherable enunciation that requires patience, waiting and an awareness of clues. Absract still images appear at first to be isolated from any reality, but the effort of remaining involved is vigorously rewarded. Very different from the Beckettian absurd form of Marcellvs strategy consists in delaying the delivery of pleasure and comprehension. When his works reach their conclusion, they invoke the Kantian sense of the sublime.

Marcellvs L is interested in the act of preparing a delay - 'time that doesn't go by', in the psychoanalytical sense. He constructs a place of reverie and escape. With the diaphragm of his camera either nearly closed,
or wide open - suggesting claustrophobia or agoraphobia - he allows only a detail of the detail to be seen. This minimal information fills the screen and becomes maximal, although it also maximises our perplexity. Having lost any reference to an overall totality that might revert to representation, our gaze is overcome by a sort of haunting. The viewer’s mind is projected towards infinity and fails to find any point to hold on to. The only fixed thing, the camera records the world as it spins. This radical vertigo plunges us into an abyss. It is a controlled descent, nevertheless. The smoke-like sensation momentarily blinds us. Little by little, very gradually, each of Marcellvs L’s films reveals clarity. The appearnace of this clarity emerges in such scenes as an encounter with a horse in the street in front of a health club. It appears to be faked by the artist, yet these are real encounters.

With this sort of shift in reading the work to a reduced narrative, Guimarães, no longer serves as model for Marcellvs L. While Guimarães dominates the narrative voice, Marcellvs L seeks to structure the slow passage from unconsciousness to reality like the resistance against awakening in order not to lose a dream. Both artists live in the mountainous region of Belo Horizonte, and each brings to the city the freshness of a new form of moving imagery.

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.
