An Elegy to the Medium of Film
at Noorderzon

Noorderzon Festival of Performing Arts Groningen
21-28 August 2015

Moesstraat 7, Groningen, The Netherlands

Lundahl & Seitl create artworks as elegies to specific art forms and the architectural institutions where those forms are presented. In An Elegy to the Medium of Film they explore the future of film and the cinema.

An Elegy proposes the hypothesis that we carry so much film inside us that we need very little external stimuli to create a cinematic experience. Visitors enter a darkened room in which they experience projections that play not on the screen in front of them, but in their own consciousness.

Lundahl & Seitl would like the visitor to become immersed in the inter-subjective experience of entering a film with all its potential leaps in time and space. By being immersed in the mechanisms of the film medium and its interface with the world they want the work to evoke questions about the visitor’s interface with the world itself; comparing consciousness and sense perception with the film camera and the light, the projector and the screen.

use technology in such a way that it
reintroduces the natural abilities of the body.”
