The Nature of Objects

In collaboration with Cinematek
Program by Stefanie Bodien & Dario Marchiori

The origin of the word objectum means “thrown against”: the object exists outside us, it attracts us, it pushes us away, it allows itself to be reflected on or forgotten in our daily lives. It is there, it affects us, it shapes us. Even if their materiality is exterior and autonomous, objects haunt our imagi­nation, they live with us and in us. Many are the films that study the artistic, artisanal, or industrial production of objects; many are the neutral scientific studies or, on the contrary, the bombastic views of the press. In contrast, the retrospective The Nature of Objects chooses to stay as close as possible to the cinematic exploration of objects: whether banal or surprising, cinema’s curious eye makes them palpable by hollowing out their material or immaterial existences in order to finally pro-ject (“throw in front” of us) an image of them.

Objects have always sustained the imagination of filmmakers in fiction, as one will see in the retrospective’s opening screening (The Fictional Object). They also allow the director or his friends to materialize affects, to etch a personal story into them (The Emotional Object), or even to discover traces of a larger narrative in them (The Historical Object). As well as they can be considered as emblematic of daily life in a consumerist society (The Daily Object), they can be studied, commercialized, or loved as images (The Image-object). Occasionally, they begin to fly on their own, and they amuse themselves by playing tricks on us (The Autonomous Object). We hoard them, and when one day we take stock, we realize that they define us in our fragile identity (The Inventoried Object). We don’t always know how to get rid of them, or we can no longer do so (The Surplus Object). Forced by necessity, there are some who repair or reinvent objects by breathing new life into them (The Salvaged Object). In the closing screening, two major directors and admirers of Francis Ponge (the author of The Nature of Things) will lead us to discover the dialogue between words and things, enhanced by the confrontation in image and in sound (The Object in Words). A good forty-odd films from eleven different countries will allow us to explore the poetics and the politics of objects that film, especially documentary film, has been able to interpret. Celebrated and unknown directors alike will accompany us in this undertaking, from Pollet to Lehman, from Rivette to Farocki, from Richter to Moullet.
