Form Film: Group Exhibition
Doug Aitken, The Complete Arthole, Isaac Julien, Abigail Lane, Tracey Moffatt, Hadrian Pigott, Steven Pippin
from film explores the power of the single image, often suggesting a complex narrative, more associated with painting. The artist allows the viewer to spend time with the image, enabling a closer examination and consideration of a view that would normally only be seen in their films for a few seconds. Most of the work exhibited is manipulated in some way either digitally or through the printing process. Although there are references to cinema, particularly with Aitken and Julien, the photographs are not film stills, rather photographs/prints taken at the same time as the film, resulting in works which exist in an intriguing space between photography and film.
