About the Edition

diorama: [Greek dia= through + horama =view] a scene on translucent material; illusion of depth, movement or narrative is created with two layers of relating images.

In 2008 Sigune Hamann showed a large-scale site-specific photographic installation at the Gallery of Photography, Dublin, built on the original site of one of Daguerre’s dioramas. With the change of daylight and artificial light, and the position of the viewer, one or other translucent layered images predominates, both changing and merging over time.

The film-strip process involves using a photographic camera like a movie camera, exposing a whole roll of photographic film in one continuous rewinding movement while moving (walking or turning) herself.

Sigune Hamann’s work deals with the passing of time in the fixing of an image and the perception and recollection of events. In photographic film-strips she captures the dynamics of urban environments.

Her 2013 solo exhibition ‘In the name of’ (Durham Art Gallery, 2013) featured a 56 meter film-strip installation. Other recent projects include ‘Wave’ (Wellcome Collections, London, 2012), ‘Whitehall’ (ISEA, Istanbul Biennale, 2011), and ‘Stillness and Movement’ (Tate Conference 2010). She was recently CreativeWorks Entrepreneur in Residence at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
