Chantal Akerman


Film, 00:11:00.
Materials: 16 mm film transferred to dvd, colour

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. S0468).

A long and slow panoramic shot describes continuously the space in a room. Chantal Akerman sits on a bed, at first motionless and then, when the camera captures her again, eating an apple. This film is a mysterious self-portrait of the filmmaker at her favourite spot as well as a sort of cinematic still-life, repetitively describing elements in a space.
