The Waves
Thierry Kuntzel

The Waves – an installation where visitors watch massive waves come crashing down, while sea sounds play in the background. As spectators approach the screen, the images slow to a halt and the sound cuts out...

Thierry Kuntzel (1948-2007) is recognized as a major figure in video art. With its theoretical reflections, as well as its poetic and pictorial references, his work occupies a place between writing, cinema, video and visual arts. Starting in the 1980s, his art concentrated on video installations where the spectator was made to be an integral part of the mise en scène by being immersed into a large-scale projection.

The Waves – an installation where visitors watch massive waves come crashing down, while sea sounds play in the background – introduced a new aspect to his work: interaction. As spectators approach the screen, the images slow to a halt and the sound cuts out. The exact opposite then happens as they move away.
Beyond its apparent simplicity, this work reveals itself to be quite complex through the singular relationship it creates with the spectator, somewhere between poetry and the melancholy we experience when we can suspend time or not.
