Before and Beyond the Lens

Before and Beyond the Lens

Opening: 23rd September 6-10 pm

Opening during Gallery Weekend (23-25 September) Galleri Format proudly presents Before and Beyond the Lens, a group exhibition in collaboration with Celsius Projects.

Before and Beyond the Lens is an exhibition that takes place in two galleries simultaneously. Galleri Format and Celsius Projects present an exhibition of local and international artists showing work in both spaces. This collaboration explores the tension between the different forms that are more often presented at each of the galleries, for instance Galleri Format often presents lens-based work while Celsius Projects can be more sculptural and performative.

The exhibition’s theme examines the position of the artwork across different media as they exist behind and outside of the frame or lens. What happens in front of the lens of a camera is also informed by what happens behind the camera. Considering storytelling, time and memory as something that happens before and after the moment of recording or time of exhibition.
