Delicatessen is a two channel SD video installation made with two video projections in opposite walls creating a visual diagonal. These videos use two samples (12 frames and 13 frames) from Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Delicatessen (1991). The notion of “champ et contre champ” is here explored as the two sequential shoots are isolated and separated spacially in order to put the viewer in the middle of the gaze of both objects, thus becoming the target.
