THE BIG SMOKE
GEERT VAN MIL & DORIS DENEKAMP : THE BIG SMOKE : 2009
Geert van Mil and Doris Denekamp filmed the projection of a famous film. The Big Sleep from 1946 is a striking example of Film Noir. The artists projected the film through an unregular curtain of smoke, thus sometimes catching the images, sometimes just missing them. Fragments of faces and interiors loom up from the smoke and desintegrate again. The dark smokey atmosphere of the Film Noir is here expressed in its essence.
