Selfportrait – Isobel Blank (2009, 2’54”)

Prevaricating between coquettishness, temerity and an almost narcissistic modesty, Tuscan artist Isobel Blank signs her “Selfportrait” with panache. This delectable clip inverses the codes and conventions of cinema to join the ranks of contemporary experimental video art.

Armed with her paintbrush – a fixed camera; her canvas – a living room; and her distinctive stroke – the jump cut, Blank conjures up a portrait of herself as an artist and as a woman, all in the space of a few fleeting minutes. Taking turns hiding and unveiling herself, she explores space in her own manner, oblivious to the edicts of traditional narration. By alternating between close-ups and long shots, the artist successfully evades the viewer, who at the end of the exercise has only a very vague notion of who the aptly named Ms Blank really is. This essentially “feminine” manner of filming femininity is reminiscent of the earlier works of Chantal Akerman: indeed the spectator of “The Room” or “I You He She…” too was similarly lured into a deceptive display of exhibitionism, where the frustrated gaze was riveted in vain to an elusive, almost imperceptible subject.

With “Selfprotrait”, Isobel Blank effectively demonstrates the “less is more” principle, and unfurls her large palette of pictorial, musical and cinematographic talents. Bizarre and eccentric, the film is a perfect reflection of its author, and most certainly one of the most atypical of showreels!

(Adi Chesson review, for formatcourt.com)

this film will be part of the opening and Art night Thursday Special Screenings, and of the event daily screenings.
