Contact - a film by Claire Denis, 2014

In 2014, Claire Denis and Olafur Eliasson connected for the first time to explore their fascination for phenomena not yet explained by science, like black holes, and discovered along the way a shared confidence in abstraction. From their dialogues emerged a three-minute film contemplating Eliasson’s artwork Contact and the feeling of infinity that its intense yellow light inspires.

Denis's film premiere on 14 and 15 February at Fondation Louis Vuitton as part of the public programme accompanying Eliasson’s exhibition.

Duration: 3 minutes
