Absorbing Exposure is a photographical
performance, searching for a sublime moment that has already passed.
How do light and time influence our experiences and
later our memories?
Are we able, by shining a new light on them in a
different time, to allow passed experiences to exist in a parallel world of
During the performance, live pictures are taken in the
space (and therefore time) where the performance takes place. By means of
photographical techniques and projections the memories of the camera and those
of the performers as well as the audience are transposed and redirected into
time. Evelien Cammaert attempts to trace moments from the past, relocate them
and finally frame them, before they once again are swallowed by the dark. While
an increasing amount of traces are left behind, images are caused to melt
together with time. Lifting each other towards a new level of existence.
