The Dream That Kicks / Jan 15th 2017

Gaëlle Rouard : The Haunting Collage


This month we have teamed up with All Ears Festival to bring you a special live projection performance by Gaëlle Rouard.

An alchemist specialising in the precipitation of silver on film, Gaëlle Rouard (FR) is one the world’s foremost practitioners of live projection cinema. In her immersive and hypnotic performances she acts directly with the film as it is projected, slowing it down, working with the shutter, with sound and visual manipulation to create subtle improvisational effects.

Rouard is constantly developing various methods of hand processing film, and is always exploring the possibilities of live multi-projection in both solo and collaborative forms.

This is her first visit to Oslo. Rouard will perform two pieces :


UNTER  (2011, 16mm, b/w, sound, 20 min.)

Wasser, nur Wasser, und nichts, um alles aufzunehmen!

The sea foams and bubbles. Gray white bleak everywhere.

Chasms and mountains. Water… only water! And nothing to absorb it all.

A brief look round of the chief. The needle progresses unperturbed.

First, the sonar !


M….H   (2016 16mm bw & color 36min )

Inspired by O.W. himself being by W.S.

It’s not so much a performance as it is a film interpreted live

Knock Knock Knock

Who’s there in the name of Beelzebub ?

Shake off this downy sleep : confusion now hath made his masterpiece.

and damned be him that first cries ‘hold, enough’

Knock Knock – never at quiet

what are you ? Who’s there in the other devil’s name ?

Arm arm and out !

Ring the bell !

-such a hideous trumpet-
