La Tache Aveugle, 1978-90
1978 - 1990
Throughout his creative career, James Co1eman has dealt with questions such as reality; perception, representation and the construction of the image and identity. He approaches those subjects with works produced with a tangential use of video, film, projected images, theatre or performance. His installations are presented as stagings where the spectator-observer finds himself trapped in a net of tensions and impacts. They are no longer projections; they are not imprints or traces; they are realities, existences that occur in time, between forgetfulness and memory.---Coleman links the mystery of fiction with material and historic elements of everyday life. Thus his works mix allusions to real situations, 1iterary genres like theatre and Irish folklore and pastiches taken from popular culture. All those elements are combined with images that refer indirectly to traditional painting, fashion photography and music culture. This, therefore is a complex, committed creation that suggests a coded political and social message.
