On February 15th 2018 our exhibition ‘Time machine‘ opened. The exhibition runs until March 24th.
“Photography is an art of teleporting the past into the future” – Mehmet Murat Ildan (Turkish writer)
For photographers, time is an important concept. A photograph is a moment frozen in time, but its meaning changes in the future and the photo itself becomes part of the past. Photography is two hundred years old now. During these centuries, the looks of the photographs have changed. When we see a photograph, we instinctly place it into some point in time. Brown, black and white are old, colour photographs are new. Sometimes we are right, sometimes wrong.
We asked various photographers if they could use their camera as a time machine. If they could give the viewer a feeling of displacement in time, simply by showing their photographic work? The artists will surprise the viewer by using old techniques capturing modern day subjects, or, on the contrary, using modern techniques but in a strange, timeless, old fashioned manner.
This exhibition will be about time – past, present and future.
The exhibition is curated by Jeroen de Wijs. He is a dedicated collodion photographer, and instructor at the Willem de Kooning Academy, Rotterdam. He is currently working on a project “capturing the present with the past”. Jeroen makes pictures of the modern world, with an old 13×18 cm collodion camera, choosing subjects that would have been off interest for 19th century travel guides.
