IRIT BATSRY, Screen, new video installation

2013-10-02 - 2013-10-09

aut aut arte contemporânea is pleased to present Screen, a new installationby Irit Batsry in which the artist questions fundamental notions of cinematic vocabulary and the way images are created and perceived.

In Screen, Batsry divides the gallery space by installing Film Screen,

a large hand crafted ‘screen' composed of clusters of 35MM film held

together by binders. Light, a video loop depicting projectors and reflectors on a film set being adjusted by the crew is projected through this porous ‘screen', affirming light as a primary condition to the existence of the image and creating a complex image that includes the projected video, the shadows of the film clusters as well as ‘animated drawings' composed of moving circles of

light created by the reflection of the film clusters lit by the video projector.

The viewers are able to enter ‘behind the screen' into an unusual ‘projection booth'- the enclosed space between the screen and the walls on which the images appears.
