Claire Pestaille : The Crystalline

The Crystalline project, inspired by Deleuze's writings on crystal-time in Cinema II, is a collection of disrupted vintage photographs, film stills and studio portraiture of women from the golden age of Hollywood. Geometrically divided, squared and cut, duplicated images are reassembled like a jigsaw puzzle within the format of a grid in order to produce a fractured circuit or a simultaneous double. The grid becomes both the compositional and conceptual device for the theatrics of the deconstruction of the collage to take place, an arena where identity is questioned, formed, reconstructed and at times made unrecognizable.
