Gathering two video editings resulting from commands for group shows (the first after the french painter Gustave Courbet, the second after the french writer Jean Bruller), Oxymora brings the viewer between light and shade. Playing on a series of ambivalences and reversal effects, it approaches, in the same way as the series Whistle, questions linked to the relationship of the viewer and the artwork.

By exploring the border between visible and invisible and working with the hors champ, it extends the esthetic researches committed in On the Tip of the Tongue and Palimpsests video series.
