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.
and film installation by Babette Mangolte 2007
installation proposes various ways to view, feel and
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.
