Andrew Noren’s The Adventures of the Exquisite Corpse film series has an autobiographical dimension and is both a testimony to his private life and a tribute to love. Part four, Charmed Particles, is one of the best examples of the abstract, transforming qualities of black and white film. It explores textures and forms, combining high-contrast photography, detail shots and pixilation to create visual music of a delicate yet powerful kinesis that reveals the simple beauty of the domestic and the phantasmal nature of appearances. A luminous world in which light becomes real and illusion, flesh.

- Charmed Particles (Andrew Noren, 1978, 16mm., silent, 78 min.)
