Epilogue: The Palpable Invisibility of Life
Directed by Tran T. Kim-Trang • 2006 • United States
EPILOGUE: THE PALPABLE INVISIBILITY OF LIFE is the final chapter in the Blindness Series, a body of eight videos on blindness and its metaphors that was begun in 1992. The inspiration for the series came from a 1990 exhibition Jacques Derrida curated for the Louvre Museum, titled Memoirs of the Blind. When Derrida died in 2004, EPILOGUE shifted focus from his work on mourning to ruminate on the visible and invisible traces one leaves behind, the cycle of life and death, and imaging technologies that allowed the artist to see her unborn son.
