"Camera and the Mirror" takes its point of departure in a live essay performed by Lalou around the camera apparatus and its transverse point from a device to its intersubjective role in societies today, looking at the functions of cinematic mechanisms. The live essay uses material from Lalou’s recent research on the role of the camera completed as part of a residency at ISCP in New York and her on-going research on ‘mechanism of the seen’, including both diagrammatic drawings and video footage extracted from the research on three films: Le Mépris (1965) by Jean-Luc Godard, Salaam Cinema (1995) by Mohsen Makhmalbaf, and Parallel I-IV (2012- 2004) by Harun Farocki, as well as from Lalou’s own recent film The Dialogue (2018).

With the starting point in the study of film and artistic practices in which the relation between camera, view and actor, subject and object is fore grounded and destabilized, Lalou extracts the relation of the cameras’ role in the animated experience of the viewer into four short video essays.
