CLEMENTINE ROY
Lives and works in Berlin.

Pistes is an installation made by Clementine Roy and consists of a series of 250 pictures of
nocturnal landscapes, taken in various countries and broadcast at random by three slide
projectors. To this systematic process of taking a picture with a prolonged exposure due to
the night time, usually elusive through the naked eye, responds a serial classification,
disturbed by the chance nature of the projection. These light tracks propagate
simultaneously in a geographical, staged and physical space, corresponding to the
landscape, as well as the exhibition space, and the retina.
