Definition :
A clean book with unmarked pages, firm binding, no foxing, unsoiled, and that it is as close to new as possible but it is not brand new.
This book accompanies an exhibition at the White-Out Studio (Knokke-Heist)Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis: Disambiguation consists of a box of 6 cahiers; each cahier shapes the perception of one exhibition - a recurring attempt at disambiguation.Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is the protagonist of this serial. In six screenplays, the oblique shadow of her image comes to the fore, evoking an image that involuntarily traces the road that crosses borders and time. Against the background, shattered images grow like crooked branches, turning into a "thicket" - a collective noun, a "Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis", to be inhaled like one single retained gasp.The changing figure is always drawn against the same setting: the completely stripped display window of the White-Out Studio. This sort of periodical emptiness - which is both embodied in the blank pages of the cahier and the empty window from which it operates - comprises the space to put an impression of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis on display. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is like a collection with a number of characters, plots and landscapes that disclose themselves to the public. Film sequences of non-expressive, constructed images. In each cahier, we achieve saturation as such, the neutral joiner that binds all self-contained ambiguities.The apparent absence of the main character and the emptiness of the setting turn each "Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis" into a variation on the same playful "disambiguity" - as in a reversal of the ambiguous. A continuous, drifting state of (dis)ambiguity.
