  Looking and Touching was included in Live Art on Camera at the John Hansard Gallery curated by Alice Maude-Roxby.
John Hansard Gallery, Southampton , SO17 1BJ UK -
SEPTEMBER 18 - NOVEMBER 10, 2007

 

  Live Art on Camera reveals the work of photographers who documented seminal performance art events from the 1950s to the present in Europe, the United States and Japan. These events (often experienced live by only a small audience) are primarily received through still images: arguably subjective records, translated through the ideas and aesthetics of the photographer.
   
 

Looking and Touching
Photo and film installation by Babette Mangolte 2007
   
  Images:
 
   
  The installation proposes various ways to view, feel and touch photographs.
The framed prints on the wall are seen from a distance, which imposes a certain theatricality to how we look photographs. You are encouraged to manipulate the photographs on the table and compare them to the contact sheets or to the framed prints on the wall. This allows you to examine the photo details in close up and to create your own composition and collage. The sound that is coming from the two monitors brings the context of the time when those photographs were taken. The images from the films evoke the spaces where the people in the photographs and photographer lived.

PS: All photographs on the wall are printed on fiber-based paper and all prints on the table are digital inkjet prints.
