Tearing Shadow is a projection sculpture by Berlin-based artist Robert Seidel. Fragments of projection, sculpture and sounds perfoliate the gallery space, allowing the viewer to create endlessly varied audio-visual compositions by wandering around, essentially becoming a part of the artwork itself.

Exhibition explores interplay of cinema with audience imaginationFilm and video art exhibition held at Contemporary Image Collective, Cairo in collaboration with London’s Tate Modern explores complex relationships between moving images and perceptionCairo’s Contemporary Image Collective (CIC) is collaborating with the UK’s Tate Modern in a collective video art exhibition entitled ‘Objects in Mirror are Closer than they Appear’, which raises questions about the nature of cinema and moving images, and the role played by the audiences’ imaginations and perceptions in constructing narratives.
The exhibition features seven international artists; Herman Asselberghs, Manon de Boer, Sherif El-Azma, Patricia Esquivias, Lars Laumann, Maha Maamoun, and Ján Mančuška. The video art and film works showcased at the Contemporary Image Collective in downtown Cairo explore interrelationships between image, narrative and the viewer’s perception.
“The film and video works in this exhibition expose the fracture between what we are shown on screen and what we see,” reads the exhibition press release. “Borrowing from various cinematic conventions, as well as formats including lecture, documentary, rehearsal and found footage, they examine the limits of our imagination and credulity.”
Heck yes! Adam Curtis (experimental documentarian extraordinaire) has his own blog on the BBC’s website.
