Primarily known for his film work, Scottish artist and filmmaker Luke Fowler’s Two-Frame Films explores the relationship between the artist and the still-image. Fowler uses a half-frame camera whose obsolescent format forces the printing of two images in one standard 35mm frame. Considered as a whole, the paired images reveal an event unfolding – a meaningful narrative posed by photographic sets, sometimes close in temporal proximity (the blink of time passing, perhaps), while at other times, the intervals are more expansive, challenging the viewer to connect visible terminal points in a satisfying way. The photographs are a means of personally testing the ability of the camera to authentically bear witness to an event, and its fallibility as a medium of representation. Texts by Harvie Ferguson and Toshiya Tsunoda. Thanks again to the brilliant MACK (London).
