Abstract (English)

'' Image and reality interfuse, recalling Marcel Proust's evocative description in Swann's Way : '' Just as, in the transformation scene in a theater, a fold of the fairy's dress, a trembling of her little finger, betray the physical presence of the living actress, whereas we had not been sure if we were not looking at a simple projection of light.'' Where the awareness of the construction of image reinforces physical presence, the suggestion of something unconscious, the dream-state, is entirely in keeping with Christine Davis' slide dissolves. It is this dynamic that she makes so vivid, this interaction on the skin of the screen'' --
