Paysagiste, Le

1991, 08:30 minutes, colour


Shot during a trip to Iceland, Le Paysagiste documents the attempts of an artist to explore, record and interpret a fascinating landscape. The amplified sounds of the wind, water and wildlife suggest a more dynamic presence for the static imagery preventing simple translation of the landscape into language.

Tourné en Islande,
Le paysagiste est un domumentaire sur les efforts d'un artiste pour explorer, enregistrer et interpréter un paysage fascinant. Les particularités du terrain islandais sont présentées comme des symboles cartographiques. Ils fonctionnent comme métaphores pour la mémoire, humaine et technologique, qui tend à réduire et à transformer la nature en signes.
