The term inarchivé refers to the persistence of images and what remains of events beyond their archived or archivable meanings, contexts and interpretations, what is troubled and troubling in the image. At stake in the inarchivé, however is not renewing interpretation, to add to the meanings attributed to a given image or artefact, but resurrection and activation : to wake the image, plug it into a new machine of expression.
The tyranny of what must appear as already recognized or recognizable according to a logic of communication and exchange (perpetuation of a given order of things, and of supposedly shared order-words) and that obstructs or segments the movement of a thought, the incalculable, impersonal aimless flows of a production of the new. When someone asks us what visagéité is we could reply simply : the enemy, all those binarisms of identity, identification, representation, celebrity culture, communication, spectacle that segments the visible and masks the visual, all those tedious formulas, intentions, this or that ? So are you filmmakers or visual artists, is this documentary or fiction? Faces can be beautiful sometimes but never in their faciality.
Inclinations are a peripheric matter, a molecular movement towards the outside (of known languages and territories) that destabilises body, mind and self. Inclination is like risk, suspension, adventure, vertigo, the beginning of a becoming other, a process of fabulation. The only form of identity we are willing to recognize : inclinational identity.
The problems of thought (or that thought invents) constitute variable territories that must be articulated on several planes and in different concrete situations, micro and macro. The forms of contemporary power operate through the fabrication, modulation and continual readjustment of scales of value that on another level remain rigidly stratified. The only response it seems to us is to produce unexpected intervals and interferences unassimilable to the binary machines of meaning and value, a continuous variation of harmonic dissonances that traverse and fissure the overcodings of perceptual and behavioural governance.
To be on the edge is not the same as to be on the margins, one can be on the edge even if one is at the centre, for the outside is not simply the area external to or bordering on one’s milieu, but the direction of a becoming that is intensive, molecular, not a question of the space one occupies but the way one occupies (and displaces) space.
The power of the exhausted, and of exhaustion, obstination of a process that opens a breach between the realms of the living and the dead, the repetition that marks a recommencement, and then reaching the point where the order of things no longer matters. The philosopher is like a zombie that comes back from the land of the dead with a song of life. Cinema is a history of inventions left for dead, awaiting rescue.
The wandering, errant line, to take one’s thoughts for a walk, become a line of thought, a membrane, a breath of air, traverse different milieus, pick up what you need for the journey, explore the far reaches of a populous solitude : Klee, Walser, Deligny, Rivette, Ornette Coleman… We imagine a cinema of such lines like so many interweaving melodies that feel each other’s presence but never touch, a harmolodic cinema.
Where the earth has broken off from itself, the wrenching deterritorializing violence of a thought that seizes hold from the outside. Like Monica Vitti in Antonioni’s L’avventura looking down from a cliff towards the crashing surf seized by the thought of Anna’s unfathomable ‘disappearance’, which is the filmmaker’s dream.
