Oscillating Shadows, 2014

A large projection of a dark, almost unreadable, portrait dominates the gallery space. Opposite a video depicting a water tank filled with floating photographs. Another film invites the spectator to contemplate a reflecting body of water at the seaside. All the three works observe a fragile moment, the threshold of an image’s existence that oscillates between presence and absence. This body of work explores the intersection of the photographic analogue still and the electronic moving image, using their media specificity as a conceptual framework to reflect on the image’s relation to time. With the idea that through constant movement, the image is never present as a whole and, therefore, endlessly split into fragments, it was this volatility that attracted me in the first place. The focus on video gave me a better understanding of my previous works and allowed me to see a constant theme resonating through my research: the ungraspability of an image.
