A selection of international artists’ film focusing on the technology of the image.
Argentine Andrés Denegri (b. 1975) documents his mesmerising installation, where an image is projected onto a long strip of 16mm film. A stop-motion animation by Polish artist Mateusz Sadowski (b. 1984) reverses the relation between subject and background and questions conventional concepts of time. Finally, in Krisis (2016) Dimitri Venkov (b. 1980) reenacts a discussion among Russian and Ukrainian artists on social media during the Maidan protests, revealing deep aesthetic, historical and political divisions.
Artists’ Film International is a collaborative project established by the Whitechapel Gallery in 2008, featuring film, video and animation from around the world.
