Eye For I

Video Self-Portraits - Program Two

Eye Gallery (now closed)

“The subject of the self-portrait is encyclopedic, grasping its identity through the optic… of everything that constitutes the individual….Starting from the most personal quest possible, the author opens the self up to the impersonal, moving constantly from the particular to the general, with no other assurance or belief than those of the individual’s own movement….” (R. Bellour). This second program includes: The Looking Glass by Juan Downey; Marcel Odenbach’s The Contradiction of Memories (1982); Portrobot (1984), by Gerd Belz; and Scenario du film Passion (1982) by Jean-Luc Godard.
