In the mode of appropriation, The Devil in the Details revisits horror cinema through the pattern of hands. As gripping organs intimately linked to the action, the hands squeeze, shake, grasp or tear in an infinite round of expressive attitudes extracted from their context. These ephemeral moments of neglected details are gathered together and fused with a composition by Steve Reich, Clapping Music, giving the image a tangible perception. This hypnotic breviary is composed of hands that act without the control of the person to whom they belong. It is a story of possession - with multiple twists of meaning.
