Philipp Fleischman’s films begin from a technical engagement with the most basic components of filmmaking: light, exposure, and celluloid film strips. Instead of building narrative through the consecutive projection of still images contained in frames, Fleischmann’s films eliminate frames altogether. His site-specific analog cameras and the exposures on lengths of film that they produce, correspond to the dimensions of the architecture where they are installed and recorded. The stories they tell interrogate the originating roles of institutions and historical exhibition spaces in mediating relationships, contexts, and discourses between the viewing public and the art on display.
