Motion Pictures

6 December 07 - 27 January 08

We’re riddled with pointless talk, insane amounts of words and images. Stupidity is never blind or mute. So the problem is no longer getting people to express themselves, but providing little gaps of solitude and silence in which they might eventually find something to say. Gilles Deleuze, Mediators Motion pictures is an exhibition of video works by some of the country’s finest emerging and established artists. The exhibition takes as its starting point Deleuze’s insightful commentary, with all works in the exhibition sharing a single defining feature: no audio. Motion Pictures sets out to re-enchant audiences through nostalgically returning to the era of silent cinema and the silver screen, when image first learnt how to move.
