The Annonces, or advertising texts on trailers (titles and credits, slogans, commentaries) flit quickly over the screen. The artist slows down the film on the VCR or on the editing desk in order to choose a frame in which the text is not yet legible, and forms a blot in the middle of the image. All the marks are created using the same technical procedure, but there are differences in terms of frame, source and number of pieces. The eleven images in the annonces vidéo series were captured from a television screen. In the annonces peintures, the image was manually reproduced in paint by projecting it onto a large canvas. The resulting painting was photographed and then destroyed. The series comprises 9 pieces. The annonces films were taken directly from the reel of film. This series comprises 9 pieces.
