Description

In this work, Violette takes possession of a piece of the famous TriStar Pictures, in which a white horse gallops on a black background and then, like Pegasus, spreads its wings and flies away. In this case, however, not only is the image projected on an invisible screen of steam, making the horse almost a hologram in mid-air, but the gallop is also interrupted by a jump in the assembly, undermining the illusion created and revealing it the source. In this first video work, the artist, close to the narrative and the visual language of the performance, reaffirms his interest in the images used and inflated to such an extent that they are now emptied of meaning. Even the horse, used by him several times, evoking romanticism and heroic ideals, falls perfectly into this category. In this video Violette deliberately mentions also one of the most representative works of Jack Goldstein - an artist he deeply admires - in which a lion roars endlessly against a red background, making the verse to the clip of Metro Goldwyn Mayer studios.
