EN - Oh seeks to reanimate the ambitious, utopian spirit of renegade architect Etienne-Louis Boullée (1728-1799). True to the spirit of the utopian architectural tradition Boullée is part of, he is probably best remembered today for one unrealised project in particular: the design for a gigantic sphere-shaped shrine dedicated to one of the founding fathers of modern science, Isaac Newton (1784). The film sees the continuation of De Clercq’s singular ‘poétique de l’espace’ – a richly textured visual investigation of the allegorical tension between inside and outside, real and imaginary (‘virtual’), two and three-dimensional, analogue and digital, immensity and intimacy.

Anouk De Clercq's experimental short Oh is preparing for a busy September, with three festival selections, two screenings and two gallery invitations. Earlier this year the film already screened at the International Film Festival Rotterdam and the European Media Art Festival in Osnabruck.
