"Endless Scenes of Endless Dreams - Take III: Pillow Fight"

Edition 1995

In the former theatre Savoy situated in the Korte Dagsteeg a real work of film art will be exhibited. is an installation by Jean-Pierre Temmerman. It is an imaginary reconstruction based on a film by the Lumière brothers, "Pillow Fight" (cat. 960) paying homage to the film pioneers. The work is created out of his fascination for contrasts, i.e. sculpture and movement, fiction and reality, colour and black & white. It is a tribute to film ast the ultimate means of escape from time. This work of art is also embedded in a real piece of Ghent cinema history, viz. the Savoy theatre situated in an old chapel in the middle of town and will be surrounded by old film posters and compilations by the Lumière brothers.
