Chambre à Brouillard is an installation produced in Beirut in 2005.
Eight pinhole-shot photographs are hung with clothespins in a locked and humid space where a narration comes out of headphones describing a complex process of vapory transformations. The narrator speaks confidently, presenting the rich scientific findings of his experiment.
Inhabiting the form of a documentary, Chambre à Brouillard elicits both a fictional and poetic measure. In what it reveals, there is a layer of invisibility that reminds that the truth is yet to unfold, or rather, is perpetually unfolding.
In intermingling the scientific with the poetic, the real with the imaginary, Chambre à Brouillard interrogates the certainties and the credibilities embedded in structures of power and spectacles of knowledge.
