Synopsis

Here marshalore establishes strange equivalencies between texts and images, while conveying her fondness for Dutch culture through various images and a long and dense text. The invention of oil painting by Van Eyck, she informs us, was based on the special quality of Dutch light. The construction of this video, in fact, brings to mind works by Dutch painters: floating layers of events take the place of the layers of oil paint.
