The early and very interesting film project by the two italian artists Alberto Grifi and Gianfranco Baruchello, which hardly has been known to a wider public, recently got revived through an online presence initiated by the the imaginary art-group Les Liens Invisibles. The group set up a downloadable database website which refers to the artists’ project entitled Disperse Exclamatory phase.
|In 1964, italian artists Alberto Grifi and Gianfranco Baruchello gave birth to one of the most interesting and significant experiments in the fields of art and cinema: â€œUncertain Verificationâ€, a paradoxical assemblage of cinematographic extracts taken from over 450.000 feet of Hollywood footage from the 50s, originally destined to be destroyed and purchased for the price of 15.000 liras.

|Over forty years later, the imaginary art-group Les Liens Invisibles are reinterpreting and re-actualizing Grifiâ€™s and Baruchelloâ€™s deconstructive action in order to complete the originally planned conceptual dissolution, picking up where the two artists left off, at the unfinished phase of dispersion, the Disperse Exclamatory phase.

|This operation of reverse engineering at the base of the project by Les Liens Invisibles consists in deconstructing the footage cut by cut, and publishing a fragmentary version online, making the â€œsourceâ€ contents of the cinematographic work accessible to the public. Through this process, its rigid, logical and linear narrative structure can be interpreted in an â€œOpen Sourceâ€ type of approach.

|The â€œUncertain verificationâ€ thus becomes â€œDisperse. Exclamatory Phaseâ€, an anonymous sequence of 1075 digital fragments, ready to be (im)possibly repossessed and recombined by that part of the network working in favour of a new narrative, dispersive, rhizomatic and potentially collective.
