Black Box Shorts: (Dis)appearances

Part of the Black Box Strand


Suspended between appearing and disappearing, presence and absence, the legible and the illegible, the films showcased here explore perceptual limits and the spaces between. A gradually deteriorating VHS tape, fragments of old colour 16mm film stock, traces of memory, glimpses of light and shadow, forms emerging and dissolving – our attention is moved from the figurative to the abstract, finding focus and then losing it again.

Contains flashing images.
