A VISTA 2019

exhibition view: Arsenal City Gallery, Poznań 2019

 

In the center of the constellation there is the camera – an autonomous, individualised, anthropomorphic, partly independent entity that watches. The space around becomes a stage: its borders are marked by four periaktoi – geometric elements of the stage design of ancient Greek theatre. On the periaktoi photographs of theatrical events are installed – photographs without a remembering subject, exposed over a long time – photographs that do not depict but „contain” the performance.

Who is the viewer here and who is the viewed?
