Jupiter

2022, video installation, 4'23''

Jupiter combines footage of nighttime lightning at the mountains of Corniglio in Italy, with a soundscape of different drumming sounds. These drums refer to something big that is about to happen, but you don’t know when. The sound of these rhythms also aim to enhance a meditative feeling.  It creates a dialogue between the lightning and drums, rhythm and randomness, patterns and unpredictability. There is no climax, no thunder and no recurrent rhythmical pattern leading the way. A play on expectations, a sign of these times of instability on every level.  The title references to the roman god of lighting and thunder. Including a mythical, bigger than us, element into it, representing a loss of control and submission to the unknown. 

 

Made during the artist residency of Cité Internationale des Arts de Paris, granted by the Belgian ministry of Culture and Arts.
