With this exhibition, Sergej Vutuc highlights that where we stand isn’t just a de facto situation but also « a state of grounding on a copy of reality », and no observer is just passive in the flows of existence and communication. Human bias occurs at every footstep and consequently so endured the large photo covering the whole of the gallery’s floor, eventually altered by the marks of incessant positions and stances.
A reoccurring theme in Vutuc’s work is the transmission of information - complete with its natural selection, alteration and deformation throughout time, as though truth endless times revisited. Here is no exception as once again photographs - fragmented cuts of reality - are presented to be not just explored but questioned, challenged, argued in their tangibility, fidelity and credibility, as the question of their physical density is raised by Vutuc through the pairing up of Super 8 film with photocopy during residency, and then projection techniques playing with layers of surfaces and transparencies as varying vibrations also audibly resonate. Another raised question being, can we ever step behind the projected information and still grasp the bigger picture? Can we walk away from our stands? Vutuc sees the « scratching on the surface of blurry dream and fantasy as the only existing reality based on self-creation », echoing his own treatment of materials, repeating that all images are products.
