Dedication to Vermeer (2007)


Dedication to Vermeer video, 6 min 39 sec, 2007 In this video work, filmed in one take, the attention is focused on the figure of a custodian at the Hermitage and micro-events that take place around her. The rigorous watch and scrutiny of the ordinary life refers to the beloved subjects of Vermeer's paintings, and the lighting, interior and the figure's position in the frame to his compositional methods. The striking of an ancient clock, complementing the video, amplifies the sensation of the slow flow of time.
