MARCH 31 – APRIL 28, 2017 |
PULP GALLERY, BOWEN ISLAND, BC, CANADA
The first FOTOFILMIC17 WINTER SHORTLIST SHOW inaugurated this new series of gallery showings by presenting 10 film and analogue photographers from 7 countries picked amongst this year’s 30 first shortlisted with a focus on elemental and conceptual relations within the social landscape. More particularly almost all artists proceed in their own way to voiding out the specific time premisses of their imagery resulting in interesting historical conflations (Yajing Liu, David Falco, Romain Darnaud & Thomas Karges, Claudia Den Boer) or mere narrative suspensions (Neil Harman, Johann Husser and to a lesser degree Tomer Kep & Ryota Kajita).
Curated by the FotoFilmic Directors each SHORTLIST SHOW presents a different 10-photographer curation drawn from the FOTOFILMIC17 SHORTLISTS ahead of official Jury deliberations. These group shows and the set of contemporary trends and aesthetic formats they come to represent embody FotoFilmic’s core discourse of material practices in the digital age known as ‘The New Face of Film’.
All works exhibited also become part of the FOTOFILMIC COLLECTION and are available for sale at the FotoFilmic Store as limited-edition artist-signed and numbered original prints (framed or unframed).
