Synopsis: With Vu de l’extérieur Lucile Desamory reflects on the possibilities of a distant view from inside one’s own culture. The inside is Belgium and its cultural codes. Consisting of a white box with a hidden entrance in the screen, only visible in some moments while the video is running, the installation creates a situation where inside and outside are obscured. The projection shows parts of the feature film Télé Réalité directed by Desamory, Glodie Mubikay, and Gustave Fundi: Three Congolese women are discussing a reality TV show they plan to produce in Belgium during carnival. When visitors enter the video screen, they find themselves in a secret chamber with a surveillance monitor. On it, strange characters evolve in the house where the brotherhood of the Blancs Moussis of Stavelot make and store tons and tons of confetti. MESSAGES (gouache on paper, 2019), a painting shown in conjunction with the installation, displays conversations amongst the directors of the feature on long rolls of paper. Being based on different continents, they never met in person, but collaborated through messenger services and YouTube.
