Ten meters of evidence

Didi Lehnhausen

Ten meters of evidence is a visual artwork realised through a performative act that results in a ten-meter long gelatin silver print. Ten meters of light-sensitive paper that are exposed to films, pictures, objects and bodies. The images that are used in the performance in the darkroom are ordered in a choreography where the body, negatives and light create the print. The images that come together in the perforance are pictures and films made between Yogyakarta, Magelang and Amsterdam.
 

Artistic Statement

In my work I research how people, places and events exist within photography through the exploration of different recording devices and techniques. I am interested in how photography records and therefore functions as a form of evidence.
