Speedway, 2006

Still Speedway

A constant running throughout Jean-Michel Pancin’s practice is his way of dealing with “the Other” (subject) and “the other” (object), two concepts which are as ambiguous as they are intriguing, both alluding to otherness, that is to say, to difference. This video is a product of Pancin’s residency in Wendover, Utah. There the artist carried out geographical and social research across various media including photography and writing. The film shows a single path, a road, with neither the vehicle nor its driver appearing in the frame, thus instantly conveying to the spectator the feeling that he or she is in the driving seat of a journey through a hypnotic landscape that seems to have no boundaries and no end.
