Showtime

Antoine Cosse
Antoine Cosse
Literary and accessible, Showtime represents standalone, visual storytelling at its absolute best. London. Paris. A road trip with strangers along the French motorway. From out of the gloaming, shapes emerge; suburban visions with all the power of a desert mirage. 
 
Are they instances of real magic or of self-fulfilling prophecy? Such a large crowd of spectators can't all be wrong about the heavy sheet that hung in the sky, unsupported, can they? How is it that scenes from a nocturnal fever dream can re-emerge in a simple card trick? And what about the boat that flew? 
 
Antoine Cossé's cinematic tale of a world-famous magician known only as 'M' blurs the lines between what is real and what is a trick. His complex narrative draws on recent lines of public intellectual enquiry into the power of collective memory, how myth and fable can be used to construct identity, and whether individual psychology can ever effect objective reality. Meanwhile, his illustrations simply astonish.
