10th Anniversary of Filmverkstaden – the exhibition “When the light hits just right”.
When light particles come in contact with light-sensitive emulsion, an image of that light is recorded. After processing, what was at first a latent image, becomes visible. The exhibition When the light hits just right shows where the magic of this alchemic process is coming from, with works by 14 artists. These artists have either been a guest of Filmverkstaden in the past ten years or are active members of the association. The works on display all have their origin in the analogue media of photography or film. They show that analogue film and photography are beautiful, robust and physical media that keep the light within their fabric and hold in their emulsion the imprint of time. At the same time, these works expand our notion of what film and photography is or can be and provide us with a new way of experiencing them.
The artists in the exhibition are Elvira Akzigitova, Britt Al-Busultan, Roger Beebe, Daniel Beijar, Dagie Brundert, Claudia Hausfeld, Janika Herlevi, kinoMANUAL, Natalia Koziel, Matti Lahti, Rebecca Erin Moran, Marek Pluciennik, Greg Pope and Lasse Vairio.
