“Paul Clipson’s films are a photochemical catalog of the visible world, charged with psychic energy, scored partly by chance, and imbued with a generosity of being.” Otie Wheeler, MUBI Notebook

« Les films de Paul Clipson sont un catalogue photo-chimique du monde visible, chargé d’énergie psychique, marqué en partie par le hasard et imprégné d’une générosité de l’existence. » Otie Wheeler, MUBI Notebook

The work contained in Experimental Films has a surreal quality that is intensified by her own ethereal presence. But it’s her audacious use of camera that makes her exploration of space and time in Meshes of the Afternoon (1943), At Land (1944) and Rituals in Transfigured Time (1946) so mesmerising.

Les œuvres regroupées dans Experimental Films possèdent une aura surréaliste grâce à la présence éthérée de la cinéaste. Mais c’est bel et bien son utilisation audacieuse de la caméra, à travers l’exploration du temps et de l’espace dans Meshes of the Afternoon (1943), At Land (1944) et Rituals in Transfigured Time (1946) qui rend l’expérience fascinante.
