Inspired by Guy de Maupassant’s fictitious diary Le Horla, Séance invokes the invisible by means of motivic minimalist sequences. In the spotlight moments of the past springing from some mind lost in lunacy freeze accompanied by sinistre recordings of sound. Playing a game with the haze of light and unsettled perception, Séance, between light and shadow, tries to catch the uncanny presence of what is absent.
