SUN SET20c Laura Van Severen © Laura Van Severen

SUN-SET is a per­for­man­ce for the black box, con­sis­ting of a sequen­ce of cos­mo­go­nic moments”: pivot points bet­ween nothing and something.

Cosmogonies, or nar­ra­ti­ves of gene­sis, have taken on all sorts of forms throug­hout time, but their cre­a­tors have spun them all around a com­mon fac­tor: light. In SUN-SET the spec­ta­tor finds himself in impe­ne­tra­ble dark­ness and blin­ding light, but abo­ve all the eyes try to get a grip on light surfa­ces and volu­mes in a kind of sfu­ma­to, whe­re light and dark­ness subtly flow into one another.

SUN-SET begins in a spa­ce in which gra­du­al­ly Eigen­grau occurs, a dark gray visu­al pla­ne that humans per­cei­ve in the com­ple­te absen­ce of light. The bounda­ry bet­ween the light that is the­re and the light we think we see is faded. For what is beyond our capa­ci­ty to ima­gi­ne, nothing­ness’ for example, we ine­vi­ta­bly invent colors and sto­ries. Precisely the­se colors and sto­ries SUN-SET wants to evo­ke and exa­mi­ne, from pre-cos­mic abys­ses to the specks that appear when we have loo­ked into the sun for too long.
