The exhibition ›Pouring Tears & Pucker Grains: A History of Photographic Failure‹ by Nicolas Reinhart opens at Prospekto Galerija, Vilnius on December 14, 2023 at 18:00. The exhibition is part of ›Filmfehler‹ (›Failed Film‹), an ongoing artistic research project centered around a collection of photographic failure from the archive of the former film factory in Wolfen, Germany. ›Filmfehler‹ (›Failed Film‹) is centered around fundamental questions about photographic failure, archives and their function and use in contemporary art practice. A core interest of the project is the examination of Wolfen’s “failed film” in regard to its visual potential. The exhibition combines photographs, objects and installations to tell a history about undesired disturbances, irritating insects and the concept of failure as a defining quality of the photographic medium.
The exhibition is presented as part of the international competition “Restart” by the Lithuanian Photographers Association and is financially supported by ifa – Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen, made possible thanks to Industrie- und Filmmuseum Wolfen.
