Exhibition explores interplay of cinema with audience imagination
The exhibition features seven international artists; Herman Asselberghs, Manon de Boer, Sherif El-Azma, Patricia Esquivias, Lars Laumann, Maha Maamoun, and Ján Mančuška. The video art and film works showcased at the Contemporary Image Collective in downtown Cairo explore interrelationships between image, narrative and the viewer’s perception.
“The film and video works in this exhibition expose the fracture between what we are shown on screen and what we see,” reads the exhibition press release. “Borrowing from various cinematic conventions, as well as formats including lecture, documentary, rehearsal and found footage, they examine the limits of our imagination and credulity.”
