Beyond The Violet End of the Spectrum - Visual Documents in the Age of CCTV and Drone imagery Paula Albuquerque BRADWOLFF PROJECTS

Beyond The Violet End of the Spectrum - Visual Documents in the Age of CCTV and Drones

Paula Albuquerque is interested in the documentary and aesthetic qualities of images produced by surveillance cameras. She has therefore gathered a large collection of such images over the years. This image bank was the starting point for her Webcam Research Lab project and the resulting PhD in Artistic Research that she successfully completed in 2016.

Her exhibition BEYOND THE VIOLET END OF THE SPECTRUM - VISUAL DOCUMENTS IN THE AGE OF CCTV AND DRONES is a new project in which Albuquerque further builds on this research. It departs from the evidence that people seem to consider that surveillance cameras, both analog and digital, faithfully register reality. However, this is not always the case. Individuals capture and manipulate images, but any camera may also produce unexpected visual phenomena that do not occur in the situation being registered. The exhibition at Bradwolff Projects is the first phase of her new project in which she performs photo and video capture experiments. That the registration techniques are not neutral but always leave traces on the image is an important part of her research: The camera obscura does not only produce an inverted light projection; a digital registration by drones contains more than the mediated reality.

Paula Albuquerque is present at the gallery every Thursday during the exhibition between 13:00 and 17:00 to personally receive visitors and for her performative artistic interventions. Feel welcome to visit!

Opening 13 May : Introduction by Jeroen Boomgaard, Lector Art & Public Space, Gerrit Rietveld Academie Program Manager Amsterdam Research Institute for the Arts and Sciences
