JAMAIS LA MER NE SE RETIRE | ANGE LECCIA

The magisterial and magnificent video installation ‘Jamais la mer ne se retire’, by Ange Leccia leaves us in a melancholic state of mind. The distorted camera angle and the hypnotic rhythm intensifise this feeling even further. The sea as a symbol of eternal longing. The silent oscillation and the repetitve movement brings the flow of existence and nature’s palpitation together into tranquility.
