Terrain Vague - 1987

Blasted terrains of ruin, fog and water define the parameters for many of Nigrin's strangely beautiful films: the incomplete Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona (Aurelia); the flooded interior of a car wash (Brainwashing); a damaged heating system in New Jersey that fills a field of grass with billowing steam (Terrain Vague); the crenelated Fonthill Mansion in Doylestown, Pennsylvania (Light Pharmacy: 4.1); a warehouse fire in Philadelphia (The Burning Text); a rustic outdoor rummage sale (Rummage); the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris (Shifting Margins); a stream in a New Brunswick gutter (Light Pharmacy: 5); a backyard in New Jersey (Mental Radio); the Raritan River in Central New Jersey (The Furies and Dream Screen); the AZULIK Uh May in Mexico (Pizzica); and Death Valley and a New Orleans cemetery (Art, Empire, Industry).

/Grid/Lock/Wed/Lock - 1984
These sites are transformed by Nigrin's haunting cinematography into what he calls "light-scapes" -- it is difficult to determine whether the moon or the sun produces the grey tonalities of the films. These light-scapes are fluid, provisionally drawn by the camera's angular relation to figures who move while brandishing mirrors and glass that refract light into the camera. This refraction creates sensual and kinetic forms of light: concentric circles, pinpoints, shadow stripes. Nigrin says the reflected light is "designed to make people look and turn away at the same time. By shooting light into the lens, I shoot it back into the audience, creating flashes that blank out the spectator's retina. The spectator must then etch in this voided screen to re-establish continuity in the film." --- Irene Fizer
