Sigune Hamann‘s ‘Mayday’ solo exhibition opens at RAUMX, Kentish Town from the 3rd to the 12th of July presenting new photographic work that Haman shot on May 1st at Trafalgar Square in London. Hamann focuses on the moment when a common goal directs crowds in common movement and assertion. Film-strip (London 1.5.2015) is part of her ongoing series film-strips, which captures trajectories of bodies and lights in motion in panoramic images. A whole roll of 35 mm film is exposed in an analogue photographic camera in one continuous rewinding movement while moving (walking or turning) herself. Click here for the full press release.
Sigune Hamann’s edition with The Multiple Store, that will also be on show at RAUMX, is DIORAMA (Colour Channels) part of a film-strip of people walking over London Bridge, shows a continuous merging of colours and shades, which result in a vivid, changing multiple vision. The image is animated by changing viewpoints and light conditions and the background that it frames. DIORAMA is available for purchase on this website by clicking here.
