Onion Skin: audiovisual installation by Olivier Ratsi

Onion Skin is a new audiovisual installation by Olivier Ratsi, an artist of the ANTIVJ visual label. Onion Skin is made up of a physical dimension – a module of two walls, positioned at right angles – augmented by a projection and a 5.1 soundtrack.

Onion Skin is a graphical work about the re-composition of time and space through a game of perspectives, both of the exhibition space itself and that of the projection canvas. Built around a progressive structure, made up of 4 parts lasting 14 minutes in total, the piece plays on the principle of repetition and scale to create a physical and hypnotic experience that opens doors onto the hidden and untouchable.

The whole experience of the installation is based on a very specific point of view, a precise position from which a new dimension is revealed to the audience by anamorphosis. The simple geometric elements (“peelings”) that seemed to be flat at first suddenly start delimiting a new space. The illusion of this new dimension within the installation slowly appears as the onion skins seem to be leaving their physical surface behind.
