FILIPA CÉSAR & LOUIS HENDERSON : OP-FILM: AN ARCHAEOLOGY OF OPTICS
Apr 27 - Jun 25, 2017
Private view Wed Apr 26 6:30pm - 8:30pm
The exhibition comprises a newly commissioned film and installation exploring how optical technologies of military and colonial design – from lighthouse Fresnel lenses to global satellite navigation systems – both inform and are informed by Western models of knowledge. Taking a critical approach to the ideologies behind the development of these instruments of guidance and surveillance, the artists consider how imperial gestures of discovery, revelation and possession are embedded in associations between seeing and understanding, light projection and enlightenment.
