2019 / 5' Dir. Ugo Petronin Prod. Piet Zwart Institute


Ugo Petronin

Abiding is a short film created from a single 35mm photograph.

Taken from a train window between Dordrecht and Rotterdam, the artist has pulled the film manually in a shutter-less camera. The movement of the film and the continuous influx of light dissolved both the center of perspective and the spaces between frames. The work leans on the notions of fluidity and continuity to question the sequential recording and the frame by frame ideology in photographic and cinematographic processes. In this attempt to record without division, trees and houses lose their solidity and oscillate between abstraction and figuration. The piece evokes a filmic matter in flux in which the movements of the body, the apparatus and the sensitive surface coexist.
