EN - A blind man reports on an eclipse, a light phenomenon that he perceives through senses that do not involve sight. He takes us by the hand and guides us through the dark - through this temporary event that transforms the world as we know it. In the midst of the darkness comes a presence, visible at the sudden fall of night time till the sun inevitably rises again. True to tradition, the camera captures what temporarily passes us by. It is akin to trying to project the sun into our home in order to admire and capture the great cosmic movements. In this encounter by visual artists Anouk De Clercq and Tom Callemin, light and darkness also meet. Their respective worlds continually find themselves in the realm of the barely visible, in black-and-white, in the fascination with what light can reveal.

NL - In It gaan Anouk De Clercq en Tom Callemin met een camera op zoek naar hetgeen wat oplicht in het donker.
