Déjà Vu 2

Marion Tampon-Lajarriette’s work is best known for investigating the correlation between memory and the image, perception and sub-conscious recognition. For her digital work Déjà Vu, Tampon-Lajarriette films her protagonists in a green box studio and later superimposes the footage onto a background taken from an existing film of the first half of the 20th century. The effect is an illusion of a continuous space that brings attention to the mechanics of immersion and the distances that take place in our everyday relation to images.

Déjà Vu is closely related to Tampon-Lajarriette’s Antichthones series, but differing in its digital medium opposed to the artist’s studio-rear-projection method, where she films her characters directly in front of a studio screen showing cinematic footage. Tampon-Lajarriette has described her characters as ‘antichthones’: inhabitants of an antipodean pole or planet that according to theories of antiquity, allow for the equilibrium essential in our world.”

Marion Tampon-Lajarriette lives and works in Geneva, Switzerland, and Paris, France.
