Charles De Meaux: Ghost Train


Publisher Manuella Editions

Idea Code 14557

Charles de Meaux is known for work that occupies the territory between fine arts and cinema. In the Centre Pompidou, he installed a monumental sculpture: two intertwined white tubes through which one can walk. Once inside, the visitor experiences a sensory environment with a deluge of fleeting images, shown from 35 screens – the “windows” of what could be perceived as a moving train. The passing landscapes and familiar images from cinema are only briefly contemplated before sliding away into the journey’s past. This book documents the work through its projected images, installation views, and critical analyses by Bernard Blisténe, Israel Rosenfield and Eduardo Jorge.
