...this work shows us the difficulties of making sense of indexicality with respect to Vertigo. It is a film that toys with what is real and fabricated. It is a film in which images (and people) continually deceive. Location Proposal #2 aims to grant us access to these complexities and to create the conditions necessary to think about Vertigo’s relationship to place. For instance, Bernard’s digital projections* highlight the virtuality of HItchcockian spaces, themselves often painted, rear projected and teaming with unapologetic artifice. The exhibition of Location Proposal #2 in spaces like the Schindler House or at impromptu spaces within the public realm – in other words, places where inherent histories are permitted to penetrate Bernard’s digital work (as opposed to “white cubes” and “black boxes’ that aim to decontextualize their objects) –allow for an oscillation between reality and fiction, the real and the virtual. – Christine Sprengler, Hitchcock and Contemporary Art, 2014
*note – the images are digital models, the projections are analogue (35mm slides).
