Between Film and Photography
FOMU Photo Museum
The photographic image is imbued with stillness. No movement, no sound, no time. But what happens if you add one of these missing elements? The exhibition Between Film and Photography focuses on that rare moment in which a photographer turns towards film or a video artist turns towards photography. What beauty can be found on the border between these two media?
The exhibition highlights works that are based on photography’s relation to the appearance of the everyday and the process of that appearance and shows both video-installations and photographic works.
