Martin Arnold
BLACKOUT
Francia 2024, 7'50"

I chose the term Blackout as the overall title [for "Fluids,“ "In Tinseltown,“ and "Background Check”] because it either means too much or nothing at all: memory lapse, fainting, power failure, stock market crash, etc. Supposedly, it originally comes from the theatre world and refers to an abrupt switching off of the spotlights, which was either used as a dramaturgical effect to emphasize a punchline or simply helped when arranging a scene or changing the scenery. It’s no surprise that it was later adapted for the spaces of the so-called “Lichtspiele” (in German, a synonym for movie theatre). In my blackouts you can still see cats twitching, mice spitting, and Marilyn looking down from the starry sky. In English we speak of events taking up space (“take place”), but what happens when the space is not a place, so to speak, but an empty space? A black hole. (Martin Arnold)
