IL FAIT DIMANCHE SUR LA MER

BEAUFORT-LOCATION: FORT NAPOLEON, OSTEND

Lili Dujourie

°1941, Belgium

Looking at the work of Dujourie requires a commitment of the viewer: what does the image tell and what does it hide? Il fait dimanche sur la mer (It's Sunday at the sea) deals with the intertwining between nature and culture, the ability of the mind to symbolise and thus allowing us to see things differently. The title is derived from a poem of the Belgian poet Emile Verhaeren (1855-1916). The video shows the movements of the flood line during seven days, at the end of which it starts all over again. Lili Dujourie filmed these movements from a location in Ostend. A play of high and low tide and light and dark refers to the daily rhythm. Inside and outside, reality and fiction, all merges together soundlessly.
