On November 15th 1948 at the age of 77 the French master Georges Rouault burned 315 of his paintings in a factory furnace. Astonishingly, the event was filmed and footage survived to this day. Between the Day and the Night is a non-narrative performance inspired by this found footage. Devoid of dialog, the piece is an audio-visual poem in which the performer is immersed in sounds and images created by his own movements. Interactive apparatuses trigger sound and visual events that give a voice to the old footage and the ashen remains of the canvases.
