“I am a visual artist but you could also call me, nicely, a quacksalver.”

(Pauline_artist statement)

Artist Pauline Curnier Jardin (°1980, Marseille) dives into UBIK’s Black Hole to develop the 2011 videowork “Grotta Profunda Approfondita” into a spatial image-and-sound installation.

Grotta Profunda
les humeurs du gouffre
the moody chasm

Bernadette, the Pyrenean visionnary, once see and hear an invisible and religious Something which encourages her to look for the Truth about the origins of Humanity inside a deep cave instead of taking its apparition as a response. That’s when a strange crowd poped up on her way in the grotto and made her path a real ode to the social studies.
