DIFFÉRENCE/DIFFÉRANCE / 2020 / HD video / 9:16 / 06'13" / monitor 39 inch / loop

In the video work DIFFÉRENCE/DIFFÉRANCE two copies of the same moving image are placed on top of each other, one positive and the other one negative. Logically this intervention would have been resulted in a grey image in which nothing occurs. However, the result is not a dissolving of the two copies as expected, but reveals a flaw in the execution of this principle. We are witness of the difference between two copies of the same moving image. The title refers to a key aspect in the work of the philosopher Jacques Derrida: a difference that cannot be perceived in one way (hearing), can be perceived in another way (seeing).
