This film screened 15th October 2016.
Expanding the idea of cinema to other forms of projection, from the ancient art of memory to early modern education, wildlife exhibition design to life-size architectural experiments, reading to forecasting, this programme comprises a number of works by the artist Aurélien Froment, a series of provocations that engage and occasionally refute the expectations we bring with us when we face the cinema screen.
As one of France’s most acclaimed contemporary artists, this project is informed in part by Froment’s previous work as a cinema projectionist. Froment’s practice has, among other things, explored the role of the cinema within a wider history of exhibition making and AEMI is delighted to support this very special screening of the artist’s work.
Director Aurélien Froment will be in attendance at this screening.
