ReLumière is based on the films by Auguste and Louis Lumière. These well-known films depict every day life and document various scenes of work, leisure and social life in the early 20th century and are among the first cinematographic works ever made. In ReLumière a selection of these films is accompanied by newly-produced sonic material, which reframes and gently interferes with the narratives on screen. The films are slowed by 3 to 4 times, thus allowing the viewer to focus on the details of the familiar scenes, as well as the materiality of the film itself.
The work has been shown in two forms: a 3-channel audio-visual installation, as well as a 20-minute-long film version.
