Documentary by Tatiana Macedo
HD, 45 min., 2012
The gallery attendant in an art galery or musem is a fundamental piece
in its mise-en-scéne, his main role is to see and be seen.
Seems So Long Ago Nancy implies the spectator in an infinite gesture
of circular observation – to observe the observers. - a passive lens that fluctuates between the subjects and the neo-classical and post-modern architectural spaces they ocupy, in a balance between silence, introspection, noise, repetition, intervals and waiting – small gestures
of a fragmented post-modern flaneur.
Shot at Tate Britain and Tate Modern, London.
