Re-working the theme of the celebrated painting by Edouard Manet of a lunch party on the grass, Malcolm Le Grice questions 'the conceptual relationship of the camera to the scene in spatial terms'. Over four screens, he explores cinema's palette -- positive and negative, black and white and colour, silence and sound, static and moving camera -- and demands that the viewer construct their own synthesis of the scene from these views.
