Live film-performances have recently become their own form of artistic expression somewhere between video, visual art and choreography. The young Viennese artist Jan Machacek adds another dimension with his awareness of the installation quality of the work. In »you delay«, the artist creates an approach to Chris Marker’s famous dystopian film »La Jetée« (1962). Together with the performance artist Anat Stainberg, Machacek opens up Marker’s medial image-text-time-framework transforming the separation between life and the recorded, experience and memory, the body and image into a singular heterotopy.
