In Ouverture intérieure the separation between exhibition space and exhibited object is dissolved. Since the 1980s, Verjux has been working with powerful spotlights with which he casts beams of light in the elementary form of a circle onto a wall, ceiling or floor, and by means of this minimal intervention generates immaterial images in time. In addition to the light circles which dominate Verjux’s work, there are also vertical bars and squares of light. The environment, the process of seeing and the physical materiality of light are redefined through a simple but precisely placed projection of white light. The intensity of the 650-watt halogen profile spotlight seems to dissolve the boundaries of the exhibition space. For Verjux, his white, circular surface of light projected onto existing architectural surfaces can be read as an “acte de montrer” [act of showing], a deictic gesture emptied of religious or spiritual significance or connotations.
