Perspectiva 5 Anne-Marie Cornu  

19.11- 18.12.2004

For Perspectiva 5, her installation at Espai Ubú, Anne-Marie Cornu took as the subject of critique the live television transmission received over the building’s communal aerial. Feeding this signal into a video projector, the resulting image was immediately intercepted by bundles of fibre optic cables. Hundreds of these thin translucent fibres then fanned out in a series of wave-like forms that occupied the entirety of the exhibition space. Open to the public only during the hours of darkness, the installation radiated a web of light that resonated in response to the television signal but in a form that subverted any literal or narrative reading.
