MAGDALEN WITH THE SMOKING FLAME
VIDEO INSTALLATION - [2002] - silent - 21 min. - Loop

A digital reproduction of the painting "Magdalen with the Smoking Flame" by the seventeenth-century French painter Georges de la Tour. The smoking candle from the original painting was removed and digitally replaced by a candle with animated smoke. Flickering shadows were added to augment the illusion of a real situation. The video is projected from behind onto frosted glass framed with the kind of golden frame used for famous Old Master paintings.
