If the main purpose of cinema consists in accompanying the transformation of the spectator of cinema into a spectator of fiction, Brice Dellsperger’s remakes according to Brian de Palma, David Lynch and Zulawski, literally invites the spectator to enter squared fictions, through repetition, multiplication and figures or motives. The other, the identity, representation and its mirrors, the narration, the distortion, are some of the themes that put in perspective Brice Dellsperger’s Body Double series. He will film again the video with disguised actors for the second time with disguised actors of famous movies sequences. With Body Double 23 (2007-2010) the artist reconstructs the casting scene of De Palma’s Le Dalhia Noir, in order to question the issue of acting game and the spectator’s position.
