Oasis Onanisme

“Because blue is the complimentary colour of flesh tone (a principle that makes it the favoured background hue in Chroma Key special effects), Gallois’ mise en scene floats in a space that seems ambivalent to human life. As much as the content of the installation might promise titillating possibilities, the stage set withdraws from the viewer, quietly folding in on itself. Once again, it is not so much a pointed criticism or analytical position that underlines it meaning. Instead, Gallois has created an ambient sense of alienation which functions as a pure block of sensation.”
