OUT 2 is a collective film installation and related explorative events, inspired by Jacques Rivette’s enigmatic 13-hour film Out 1: Noli Me Tangere (1971). OUT 2 investigates "accessibility" to contemporaneity via historical moments.
It intertwines documentary and fabricated fragments, also produced in the event, into a sculptural moving image composition. Instead of adapting or reenacting the film, OUT 2 generates a view of possible correspondences surrounding the question “where are we now?”. For OUT 2 this means the unravelling of individual authorship in favour of a collective one. In taking this gamble, the only parameters we have upheld are against creating parameters, including a resistance towards establishing a definitive end. And so OUT 2 unfolds as a self-generating creature, gradually developing into its own master. OUT 2 is presented in Venice as a multi-screen installation and series of related events. Our only rule is that there are no rules, and our only certainty, that this work has no end.
