A talk with Jane Penny, TOPS’s vocalist, at her home back in Montreal
‘Photography is truth. And cinema is truth twenty-four times a second.’ There’s no second guessing which of the two artistic media Jean-Luc Godard preferred when he uttered this aphorism, but what he certainly didn’t want is to place a wall between photography and cinema. Neither do the filmmakers and shutterbugs included in this exhibition. Hiroshi Sugimoto, Jeff Wall, Jason Dee and Mekhitar Garabedian show that beauty can be found on the dividing line between the still and the moving image.
