PASSAGEWAYS provides a unique sensory experience: that of the skyspace «MEETING», filmed from inside. The use of the frame by frame process, chosen by Carine ASSCHER , allows the viewer to experience the effects of light characteristic of the TURRELL œuvre.
In other spectacular images shot in Arizona’s volcanic PAINTED DESERT region, the voice of James TURRELL resounds between crater, sky and desert as he overflies in his plane. He speaks of his formal research into light – his visual quest – and his friendship with the Hopi people and Gene SEKAQUAPTEWA, chief of the Eagles clan.
PASSAGEWAYS.film is an introduction to the work of James TURRELL. It calls on the viewer to delve deeper into the oeuvre and its origins in the meeting between the Hopi cosmogony and an artistic agenda.
